A couple totes I have made from Walnut. These are spoken for. I will make a new #5 tote for this project.
A pattern from a Union 5A might be the thing. As for knobs…
I might have a couple sitting around. So, I have most of the spares needed for this project

IF it arrives at the Lab intact, should be a start. Igor also picked up a “Parts Plane’. The handle bolts will help this project out. The rest of the parts plane? We’ll see. These two items will get here at the “Lab” next week. About next weekend, you might just hear shouts of “Its ALIVE! IT IS ALIVE!” From the “ashes of this:

This is a Stanley/Bailey #6 smooth bottom from just after WWII.
