« Part 2: Holly's Jasper #2 Part 3 of Holly's Jasper series Part 4: Holly's Jasper #4 »

Started working on the 3, 40 yr. old walnut slabs for the blank. Machine planned the patina off the surfaces to find some great figure…..

Hand planning the surfaces to be glued after lining them up so as to avoid what little checking there was (small chip missing from the middle piece will not affect the blank). Note; the plane is a pre WWII Stanley Bailey No. 6 I found on Ebay in almost new condition. After some clean up and tuning she is an awesome tool!
