I got this plane from my dad, who got it from his. It dates to 1891 and cuts really smooooth…
Unfortunately, it had a broken handle. It was a fun project – and it allowed me to custom fit the handle to my hands.
I recently got an ‘30’s vintage Walker Turner lathe :) – so once that is up and running, I’ll turn a matching front handle.
The layers are bird’s eye, mesquite, “flame maple”, and English walnut. It’s finished with 5 coats of spray lacquer.
