I liked the hand plane I made from the plans in Wood Magazine so much that I made another one. This one is made from spalted maple. The maple’s dark color makes the plane look like something my Grandfather might have used. I’ve rough sanded the plane body and rubbed in a couple of coats of tung oil. That’s all the finish it’s going to get because I’m going to use it, not put it up and look at it. I may make a few more to give as gifts this Christmas.
