Default woodline ebony wood planes

Woodline had a bunch of these ebony planes for everyone to try at the woodworking show, and while I really wasn't shopping for a plane I had to give them a try since I've not used a plane like them. I was impressed with the results of all the different sizes, but really fell in love with the 4" one. It fits in the hand well, and the results have been awesome so far.

I kinda wish I had bought one of the bigger ones on show special as well.....

Out of the box it was well tuned, rediculously sharp, and just fun to play with. It was on sale at the show for under $30, I can't remember exactly how much I paid for it. It came with a DVD that shows how to tune it up, kinda nice.

One of those impulse buys that really has come in handy!

Now you need to make yourself a little brass hammer for adjusting the plane.

I'll have to wait till I go back out to sea so I have a decent metal lathe to play with.... always looking for new projects. These ones are a little dusty and beat up from being on a shelf in the shop so long.

Default ebony planes

Various sorts of timber may be used as planemaking generally. Most of the old wooden planes of past decades are actually created from timbers for instance beech, hornbeam, walnut, boxwood and birch. I have run into some fin good good examples of early Scottish and British made metal planes with some other burls for instance walnut, elm, yew and ash used as infills, additionally to some spectacular American made panel plane in birdseye walnut. Several early planes were either mitre or getting rid of planes, while using periodic panel plane thrown in permanently measure. Several planes were also user made, in addition to their maker probably used whatever scraps of “nice searching stuff” he'd lounging around.
