Default My Latest Wooden Plane

Well this is the latest wooden plane mock-up. It is made from Black Walnut and has Maple racing stripe.
The blade is an 1 3/8" wide Stanley block plane blade. It is a bevel down, with a 55° bed angle.

It won't be long and you'll be stuck with the finest collection of beautiful hand-made planes. I can see a collection prominently displayed in your study...you sitting in a chair with your pipe gazing out the window and conjuring up the next masterpiece...

Love the blonde stripes...

How much better can it get...? !

So when does the storefront open? Talk about plane envy....I'm not sure I could use these as they are simply too gorgeous to think about cutting into raw wood. I suspect a better use is a huge artisan display case highlighting the beauty, design, and engineering. OK where's my towel, I'm drowning in drool.....
