He asked me to shape a plane exactly like a wood one he made. He’s been holding the tail of a old longboard for years. Almost 5” thick beast.
    After getting a rough plan on it he changed his mind on shape. Thin it all,move the concave on bottom up a inch and move the strap back a 1/2”. He said any color or work after that was up to me. Frank wears a blue plaid shirt every day. Not the same one but since starting this one I’ve noticed the pattern. He has no idea what he’s getting at coffee tomorrow. Feel free to comment. I know it’s not perfect. I’ll try to put pictures in order

    Really cool.
    These are getting nicer with every post. I’ve nevr had interest in a handplane but you’re making them look appealing.

    56EAE901-E10C-4C1F-977F-D432D90AB5EC.png 66 Benz is Ramsey’s. Other than side pipes and air ride suspension it’s all original. Diesel too. Love going to lunch in it. Hard to be in a bad mood cruising around in it. No rush either.

    In an old diesel Benz without turbo, you better not be in a hurry. :)
