I made this hand plane way back in High School as a gift for my grandfather . It was my third project ever. I remember spending hours sanding the end grains and grooves for your fingers on the right side.

It’s about 18 years old now. My grandfather never used it and recently passed on so I got it back. I’ll have to see if I can get the hardware to make it functional.

Beautiful…let us know if you make it functional…but as far as I can see, it stands on it’s own as is as well. Awesome.

Have your say...
