Topic tags/keywords: plane shaping sharpening

Hi all! I love seeing all the refurbs and sparkly new planes but how about a thread devoted to those planes made in the shop? Criteria is simple; show us a picture and maybe share the story of your shop made plane, it doesn’t have to be 100% shop made but should demonstrate investment of time and creativity to make it uniquely yours!

I’ll get us started with my latest project. A smooth plane I made out of cherry and hard maple. The frog and iron are donated from a Stanley #26 and the plans/inspiration came from an article in Wood magazine. The donor plane was a gift from my father in law so its extra special to me to be able to make a useful tool from a thoughtful gift!

There was a hand plane swap in 2013 and another one (I think) in 2015. I just checked and there are only 3 of those entries posted in the tag created for that purpose. There are some nice examples posted so far.

Here is my entry for the 2013 swap.
