Blackwood Fillister - Complete


Hi Folks
Last week was a busy week - finished the Blackwood Fillister, amongst others.
It was a lot of work, and chopping a 1/8th thick mortise by hand for the nicker iron was rather "exciting" in this hard timber, but it looks pretty awesome! I do hope the new owner is pleased with it.

Also visited a Friend who is a website building guru - a new "Philly Planes" website is under construction and will be unveiled soon!

Cheers

Philly

Wow, awesome plane philly, it's got to be your best effort yet.

The blackwood and brass go together a treat, it really is a mighty fine wood to make tools from, despite being a complete bugger to work with.

Carry on with the good work.
