I have made an acquaintance with an accomplished engraver who has taken some beautiful high-end planes to an entirely different level with the addition of one-of-a-kind engraving work. Obviously this represents hours of detailed work with SEVERE attention to detail. I thought that some of you that have a place in your smoother stable for collectors pieces should see these.
Catherine had this to say about them: “I have 2 planes for sale: #3 Stanley for $400 and the LieNeilsen #62 Jack plane, inlaid with brass, bronze and copper, for $900. The lattter won the Artistic Uniqueness Award at the Firearms Engravers Guild of Americas show in Reno end of Jan. Quite the show piece!”
I heartily agrre. If anyone is serious about needing_ one of these, please send me a private message and I will put you together with her.
Whadda ya think, Wayne C. You should have one, IMHO
