Cool! Hope he has a wooden workbench - that metal will be hell on tools!

That looks very nice
Whats this I hear about you moving? And why?
I didnt take any pics of the osage plane, because in true ME form, I modified it. I didnt like the way it fit my paw and well, since it's mine, I altered your wares (plz don't be mad!) So now the back is lopsided. But it feels good.
I do that a lot. Resized handles, funny bends. But hey, I've got to be comfortable using things. So I do that. Oddly, LN handles are just about right. Haven't changed any of them.
Kind of in the middle of him-hawing around about a stock I made over 10 years ago. It works, but I've gotten a little more back into target shooting of late, and always said I'd re-do a couple of things. So I have a hunk that started as 16/4 poplar and am making a prototype. If it feels like I want it to, I can use it as a duplicating pattern.
Funny bumps and everything.

By all means still post pictures! I don't mind one bit if people modify the planes. You bought it, it's yours. Maybe however you mod'd yours is something I should consider. I have yet to post the block plane design for sale because of a couple small concerns I have. So please, share!
