joint effort, me and my SonSorry for only one picture but that was all I was able to get. My Son needed an idea for his Mom's birthday. He decided he would do a print of a flowering bush (rose of sharon) she has in the yard and asked if I would do a frame for him. Can't say no to your Son so I put a rush on it. Her birthday was May 8th so it was still late. (My fault. Another fight with my enemy, the 45 degree angle) The wood is silver maple with a walnut insert around the edge with a cove. The wood came from a tree that fell in our yard 2-3 years ago. She was very happy with it.

Handmade Hand plane

Handmade Hand planeI just finished my latest project. I made a hand plane using a frog from a Stanley no. 26 Type 10 transitional plane. I used plans from Wood Magazine, 2015 to help shape this piece. However I strayed a bit from the plans trying a few different things, such as the two tone toe and heal for one. The wood I used was Cherry, Black Walnut and Red Oak was used for the sole. It was a fun project and helped with building some of my skills such as using a spoke shave, and using several different sizes of chisels and lots and lots of hand sanding. I gave the piece two coats of Danish Oil and finished it off with two coats of lacquer. Even though it cuts great, I probably won't use it and will shelve this so I can just look at it. Thanks for looking.
