A photo of my new bevel tool and a soap bar after beveling. Don't laugh! It takes practice, but I am improving. I strive to produce bevels as attractive as IrishLass achieves.

I've had the plane about two weeks now and have only used it a on about a couple dozen bars, but the results improving.



For anyone who wants more information, here is a link to IrishLass's post which includes how to use it with photos of her gorgeously beveled soap:

Right here, silly!
Awesome, Earlene! :) Please forgive my late response- we just got back from vacation.

It took a little practice for me at first, too. I had to adjust the black knob to get the right angle/depth of bevel for my liking, but once I did, I tightened it down good and haven't moved it since! lol


IrishLass :)

Thank you, IrishLass. I was wondering if I should adjust the angle, but didn't want to mess things up. I may try that.
