This is the pane I made for CFrye. The design is based roughly on a Wayne Anderson infill panel plane (of course his is more beautiful…). The plane has dovetailed Brazilian cherry sides and sole, with an ebony mouth piece. It is stuffed with blistered maple and finished off with a wooden lever cap adorned with an ebony button. I used a vintage blade and inlaid a 1-Euro cent piece (European penny) into the sole. The wooden lever cap seemed to hold up very well, but I told Candy that I would replace it with a new design if it ever breaks. Finally, it was finished off with 2 coats of BLO and about 5 coats of 50/50 bee’s and carnuba paste wax. I really hope it is a workhorse for Candy for decades to come.

Cheers,

What a beautiful piece of work, almost too good to use, that handle looks really comfortable.
