I’ve got a bit of a problem. If I’m not restoring planes, I’m probably making them.
This one is made from butternut and cherry with a hophornbeam sole pad. If you don’t know, hophornbeam is one of the hardest wood grown in the North East. I’ve known it as hardhack my whole life.
It’s 7” long and 2 7/8” wide and had a Hock 2 piece cutter.
Finish is several coats of hand rubbed truoil.
I made a few other with it, to be posted at a later date.
