This cost less than £40 in bits.
I wanted to put some effort into it and in my stash of nice woods that i've saved from tree surgery work, I had some Cherry Plum wood that was still green. It made it easier to work with the hand tools but a pain to dry out without checking and twisting.
Sawn block and preparing two flat planes, ready for sawing in two.
Glued up and rasping to shape.
Some abrasive paper and a bit of graft and...
Early days as it needs longer in the grapeseed oil, a cure, then a beeswax polish, so it should look better and be stabilised then.
I'm glad I used the vulcanised liners, I normally use leather or bark, but these do look great and are easier to sand flat.
Hope you like.
