I got board and decided to play with scraps. These are not functional planes, but functional bottle openers.

The first is a random combination of cherry, spalted yellow birch, ash, maple, and walnut. I actually turned a knob and an adjustment dial out of ash on the lathe. The tote is Ash also.

The second is walnut with a maple sole and a butternut iron.

They both use a large fender washer as the bottle opener and work really well.

Finish on both is danish oil and wax

This is really a cool idea. You did a great job on the detail. Functional for more than woodworkers.

I’m definitely making more of these. For what? I have no idea but they are pretty fun. I may actually make a real plane one of these days too

Hello lumberjoe

Woawwwww a beautiful idea and very fun

I have a lot beer to open …...

You can open your beer in your shop and say : “Darling, No I don’t drink a beer, I have just a lot piece of wood to work with my plane!”

In my favorite

Thanks for sharing
