Shavings, shavings and more shavings

I thought this made for a neat picture.  These shavings were made with a dado plane.  I was preparing some material for the Coquille Lighthouse project discussed in the previous post.
I originally started out using my power router to make these dados, but I couldn't stand the racket and dust it made.  I guess I have completely converted to a non-power tool business.

Those are beautiful. I loved playing with the shaving curls when my Dad was building something as a kid.
For some reason I have it in my head that they used to use them to make wigs for plays way back when. I don't know if that is true, but it would be cool.
