I made there planes using a book “Making Wood Tools with John Wilson” available at http://www.shakerovalbox.com/. A great book! My planes a curly maple with walnut and zebra wood ascents. The finish is bush oil available at http://www.lakeshorehardwoods.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=68 . These planes are currently decorative, I still need to shape and temper the blades for real use.

I couldn’t help notice it looks like you have 3 more than you need… :-)
