Preliminary form.

Finally it was time to start planing the strips in the preliminary form. Although all stages of building a splitcane rod is interesting and satisfying, it is when I begin to use the block plane the best part of the building starts.

Removing the outer layer of the enamel gives me more control over the taper measurement's when planing the strips, not everybody does it, but it works best for me that way.
It's nice to hear the sound of a razor sharp blade when you are planing the strip.....zzzziip.
Just like music, lovely.

The strip on it's way to the 60 degree angle.
