Two ebony creatures that have left my workshop to go out into the wild... made for some tool collector friends.
"Leave it to Beaver" is a little shaver... only 6" long, with eyes and teeth of vintage ivory. Designed as a miniature smoothing plane.
"A Whale of a Plane" is a 6" long compass plane. When used the shavings exit through the whale's "blow hole".
Both were featured on the back cover of Fine Woodworking's Tools and Shops annual issue of 2003/2004.
