Latest iteration of my signature plane design. This one is a true Lumbejocks collective effort. The beautifully tight-grained sapele body was purchased from firetowerfp and the wonderfully figured Norway maple tote came from summerfi. It was a piece he milled himself and I bought a few pieces for plane building. Here's a couple other shots of the tote:As great as that figure looks in pics, it's a thousand times better in personThis plane is a variation on my standard 9in smoother. It sports a single 2in wide Hock O1 iron (as opposed to the normal 1-3/4 double iron on this size plane). Iron is bedded at 50 degrees, with a super tight mouth and is capable of exceptional performance.Thanks for looking, on to the next one.
I made this media credenza out of cherry and walnut. The door panels are made from the crotch of a flowering cherry tree that used to be my front yard. (thanks to mdzehr for help with resawing!!). And the drawers are poplar. I finished it with Maker Brand Simple Finish with wax sealer. The top is 67 inches wide.
This is gift for the daughter of a friend of mine. They said she was looking for a unique wood wine rack and wanted the grain showing..not painted..This one is made from two wine crates of French wine plus some American pine. When I went to the party store to see if they had any more crates, they said most all wine comes in corrugated cardboard cartons. Only the most expensive wine comes in crates any more and you have to buy a full case to get the crate.The size of this rack was limited by the width or the crate boards. It finished at 13 5/8” square x 6 1/2” deep, each opening is 3 3/8” square. It can be free standing or wall mountedIt is finished with clear lacquer.Cheers, Jim
