When Tim posted his Beer Plane I knew I was making one. Beech, peruvian walnut and bubinga make up the plane. Extensive testing might be the reason I balanced a growler.

Really impressed. Do you have a plan for the beer plane? I’d love to give it a shot.

I like the wood contrast, nice one.

You have represented the beer plane making community admirably!
