Custom Handplanes

I recently finished an order for a set of two pairs of matching Handplanes. The customer was having a baptism ceremony for his two sons. He wanted a matching set to be given to a godfather and godson as a matching pair.  I thought this was a really cool gift idea and was excited to make the matching sets!
This is what I came up with!



While I was in the process of making hand planes I thought that I would make a few more. I had recently reclaimed some old redwood planks off a job and wanted to use it in my next bunch of handplanes.

The Raw Supplies:
Reclaimed Redwood
