Well… I suppose there is still a lot of old handplanes out there that simply don’t have a home. But still, the idea of re-purposing vintage planes into something of tangible interest to crafty non-woodworkers just doesn’t set well with me. Like how grandpa used to speak of ultra-cool 1940 Ford coupes ruined on half-mile dirt tracks of the 1950’s…hey, nobody wanted them, and like lambs to the slaughter, they were sacrificed by the thousands for want of a cheezy trophy. I see the same fate awaits unwanted planes.
Oh, jeez….yeah, a bare light bulb, what a nice way to light up a room.
Sure.. a coat rack is more desirable than the plane it was made from!
Let’s grow some basil….no flower pot? Use the most obvious thing: a coffin smoother.
But….here is a pic of a plane that gets MY heart a-pumping….
Seems like etsy.com could be a good place to shop for used planes, I don’t know…I’ll keep looking. I just hate to see viable planes get wrecked. But I think I’ve found the right color to use for iron hardware on Stanley trannies!
Got pics of craft-ified planes?
