Thanks to all of you who gave me guidance when I was having difficulty turning the knob. I ended up doing it what seemed like the simplest way: I turned the shape from a longer spindle, then parted it off.
The tote is pretty true to the original shape, but I made the knob a little beefier at the waist (mainly because I was a bit gun shy after breaking the first two attempts).
There is no finish on these… I just buffed and waxed them for now.
The last photo is what the plane looked like when I acquired it.
