As seen in my last instalment in this series I found some writing on the bottom of a plane handle. I repaired that handle and sanded and dyed it again and gave it several coats is new shellac. I also cleaned the rest of the body of the plane and leaver cap and sharpened the blade. I also gave the front knob 4 coats of shellac over the original stuff.
Here’s how it looks now.
