About 20 years ago I dropped my father’s hand plane and broke the handle. To this day every time I see him (we only get the chance to see each other once or twice a year) he reminds me about breaking that plane and never fixing or replacing the handle. Well, I thought instead of making him a new handle I would just make him a plane. I made the laminated blank long so I could make a matching mallet to set the wedge as well.
The plane is made from walnut and maple. I had made this plane before but this one turned out better than the first since I tuned up my saw. He’s comming out for a visit in about a month, hopefully he likes it.
