I had purchased a Stanley No 5 a while ago. I arrived with a broke tote that was renailed together. I had used it a couple times, but finally got over the big crack pinching my thumb. I had some walnut laying around (don’t know how good this is for a tote) and decided to give it a go. I cut it out on the scroll saw first then used a rasp to custom fit it to my hand until I liked the feel. Sanding happened next, but do to the depths of some of the cuts, not all cut marks were removed. The finish is just BLO. Hows it look? Any suggestions for future totes? Thanks for checking it out.

Nice job on a custom tote.
Next tote adventure, try cherry or bloodwood.
The tighter the grain, easier to shape after sawing a rough shape.

Thanks Don for the link. You have some amazing work. I’m going to put that link on my website if you don’t mind. I really like the checkered tote.

I need to do this for my old #6 Sargent. I just hate to lose the originality, but I really need to do it. Well done, and thanks for the kick in the pants example!
