Matt is doing a good job of covering planes in his podcast, etc. I’m thinking of just showing the finished results of the restoration of the different bench planes in the project section and moving on to other topics.

It didn’t take me much research to figure out Pops had a Lignum Vitae mallet in his possession. So I started looking into finding one. An extensive search found very few places that sold them...
