STUNNING EARLY ENGLISH MOLDING PLANE - CA 1725

Regular price $125.00 USD

This plane is unmarked but has all the features of the very earliest documented wooden planemakers including: round top wedge, very wide flat chamfers (9/16"!), moulded drop shoulder, and a long length of 10 1/16". It is a tongue plane but the height appears to have been shortened over the past three centuries and someone has cut a relief on the backside. Otherwise a magnificent example of very early 18th century planemaking. Uncleaned as I found it about 30 years ago.
