Two of my most used planes I purchased from Arnie Champagne's estate donation to BAWA
The most perfect planes I have ever used. My concern is that when I need to sharpen them they will never work as perfectly again.
Here are my favorite hand planes(smoothing plane, block plane, scraper plane,
I designed and made them after I finished the program at the College of the Redwoods
The scraper plane and a spokeshave are made from bronze channel. The cutter is made from a HS steel hacksaw blade
This is my favorite plane.
I use it whenever my woodworking job calls
I made it almost 15 years ago.
I took a plane making class
from the late Arnie Champagne.
It's made of Maple (body) and
Jarrah (the sole) with a Hock plane iron.
It's a basic Krenov style.
Here are 3 of my most used planes:A Veritas block plane Low angle block plane,and Shoulder plane.

bottom row: #102/#60 1/2 block, #4 smoother, #112 scraper, shoulder planes, router plane
left to right: smoother, coopering, jointer
I made this small plane a number of years ago.
When I showed it to my wife she said it looked like a tape dispenser.
So I made a tape dispenser (several actually). She was right, as usual.
Plains made for cabinet
Bruce showed 5 planes including some wooden ones. He made 3 of them for a special project, a Chinese style round corner cabinet which required special beading and grooving. He has since given them away to someone who wanted to build a similar cabinet.
This PT-17 Stearman biplane is the fourth airplane I have created
for the challenge. This little guy was primed with Zinsser primer
and painted with Testor's Enamel using an airbrush.
