These were the two shoulder planes I made for the 2015 Plane and Spokeshave Swap

The smaller one uses a medium Wood River shoulder plane blade, and the larger is using a Lie-Nielsen replacement (large) shoulder plane iron.

Smaller plane is curly walnut and cherry with a padauk wedge. The larger plane is maple and walnut, with oak dowels.

August! Glad to still see you kickin’ around these parts :-)

Thanks, next I’d like to be able to make my own irons, those Lie-Nielsen iron’s aren’t cheap… wouldn’t have used it if I didn’t already have it laying around the shop for the past 2 years…

They came out great Mos. Your woodworking skills are formidable.

Getting pretty fancy with that camera work too.

Those are great, Mos. I’ll be cutting M&T joints this weekend and will be using them then. Thanks again for sharing your time and talent.

Hey, August. A +1 on being glad to see you still around. Hope things have slowed enough for you to pop in more frequently.

Nice job Mos. And I like the professional pictures. Much better than my cell phone shots!

Mos, I like them. Nice wood combinations. The grain on the walnut is beautiful. I think I have a couple of irons from my friend. Might have to make one for myself.

Thanks guys!

I’ve been trying a little harder at the pictures thing lately. Mostly on my computer case review side of things, but thought I’d use the same set up for these too :-)

Those look pretty nice Mos. I like the “Clifton-esq” form they have. They look very handy and well made

These turned out great. They look comfortable to use and functional.

Didn’t know you reviewed computer cases, that’s a neat side project. I just built one in a fractal define r5 and am quite happy. Cable management sure is nice these days.

Thanks Allen, I thought they were comfortable, but who knows how well that translates to someone else lol

I actually got an early shipment of the Define R5 (before it was announced/released) for doing a review of it. Great case.

I also quite liked the Define S (though I may be slightly biased, seeing as we got an engineering sample, and helped with feedback (reservoir/pump mounting bracket that they include with it was my idea and design…)

They look great, Mos. Super clean work.

How do you computer case reviews go, “I mean, it’s okay, it would be nicer if it was handcrafted out of rich mahogany and a 100 year old cast iron heat return grate”.
