I've been woodworking since building that first tree house with a buddy, we were probably around 8-9. I gained a real appreciation for wood in high school wood shop class. I made a few pieces of furniture back in the 80's, then woodworking was kind of put on hold while my wife and I raised two wonderful daughters. We built a house in 02.........well OK, building a house, finished the basement in 2009. Now the girls are 19 & 21 (time really does fly) and I am enjoying woodworking again!

This plane has been my favorite tool in the shop, I love the size and weight, it just feels good in the hand. It’s always on my bench and it gets used on every project. Reading on Super Tool it seems to be a WWII era as these models sometime...
