I didn’t like the chunky tote that came with the plane; little too big for my hand and looked too squared-off for me. Modeled this new tote from an existing Stanley No. 5 tote. Made out of cherry. Actually much easier to make than most replacement totes because the hole for the bolt only needs to reach the cross dowel (the number “4” in the picture), and does not need to go all the way through the length of then tote. Finished with wipe-on poly.
