My father in law was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year. He had some surgeries and now is clear of any cancer. It was and is an ordeal though.
In the process of his illness, he gave me some old planes that his father and grandfather used. They were in pretty bad shape and won’t ever plane again, at least not by me. So I thought I’d recondition them and give them back in a nice new cherry shelf.
The shelf is done except to seal. I used Danish oil cherry on it. After a couple days the blotch should come out. Then I will seal it with minwax poly gloss wipe on.
The planes are nothing special just some old Penn hardware store or blacksmith shop.
These are the planes.
