Japanese plane wrap
plane iron protection
Since I like to sharpen my Japanese planes really well, the fact they are stored in the toolbox and I like to keep the blade out ready for use, I decided to make some protectors for the irons while stored.
1. Planes all wrapped up.
2. A piece of leather.
3. Cut to shape and make a hole.
4. Add a leather string.
5. Also protects the planes from each other.
6. And looks beautiful too I think.
(I know leather is not wood, so no one need to remind me).
I hope this could be to some inspiration, perhaps even protection of some plane irons.
