    Well that was fantastic

    Pisses me off to see people stock full of exotic woods, having no care for what illegal logging is doing to the countries these woods come from.

    It turned out beautifully. I like the look of the razee style planes, and it does seem to help with your tote hand being lower and closer to the workpiece.



  4. Eric Morris on December 8, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Love it Chris! Great work!



  5. Mohanaa Salvi on December 8, 2022 at 12:25 am

    Your hand is not a hammer. Contrary to popular belief you will grow old and will regret banging on things with your fist. I speak from 45 years as a professional cabinetmaker.



  8. Randy Allender on December 8, 2022 at 12:30 am

    disappointed in your video expected better



  9. John Hughes on December 8, 2022 at 12:32 am

    Great job !! Where did you get your wooden screwdrivers or did you make them ?



  10. محمد حلمى on December 8, 2022 at 12:34 am

    What type of wood?



  11. Michael Rickert on December 8, 2022 at 12:35 am

    I own this same plane. The owner wore 5/16" off of the bottom. He inserted a 1/4" belt under the metal assembly so he could use it. I planed the bottom square. I will glue a matching beechwood sole that is 5/16" thick.



  12. Greedlike on December 8, 2022 at 12:35 am

    It wasn’t junk



  13. glenncol on December 8, 2022 at 12:37 am

    What breed is your fur buddy?



  14. Jimmer Seiber on December 8, 2022 at 12:37 am

    I love the two toned wood you picked and I’m so glad you used that lighter corner!



  15. Caleb on December 8, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Is that a no.26?



  16. Phillip McCutcheon on December 8, 2022 at 12:40 am

    As always, so great to watch you work. Keep having fun out in the shop.



  17. FP R on December 8, 2022 at 12:41 am

    She’s a beut! 👍



  18. James Johnston on December 8, 2022 at 12:42 am

    Sweet!



  19. Rob C on December 8, 2022 at 12:45 am

    I bought that exact plane at a yard sale several years ago and was going to fix it up but haven’t. Now I’ve got some inspiration and a good idea on what to do.



  20. DrewTHEMIGHTY on December 8, 2022 at 12:47 am

    What type of paint did you use to repaint?



  21. Tim Stratton on December 8, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Is Utz a Wirehair pointing Griff? Pretty sure. My Gunner is a WPG. He says 👋.

    Oh. Nice content and production on the channel. Subscribed



  22. Donald Shields on December 8, 2022 at 12:48 am

    It is a nice job I enjoyed watching you keep up the good work God bless



  23. Adam Morris-Cope on December 8, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Ahhhh I really missed your woodworking videos! So glad you are back in action. The new shop looks incredible.



  24. parçala behçet on December 8, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Dont consume if it is not necessary. What a waste man… It just needed reconditioning but you decided to consume valuable resources… and did not achieve a better look or performance either… Plane looked just as good as the one you made… Be more responsible. Thumbs down.



  25. refusedone on December 8, 2022 at 12:49 am

    Beautiful work!



  26. Stuart Jones on December 8, 2022 at 12:50 am

    A masterpiece ,extremely enjoyable to watch , did you build that boat aswell



  27. keith thompson on December 8, 2022 at 12:52 am

    i picked one of these up recently off ebay but mine had a nice 3/16th of a inch steel plate plate fitted to its base



  28. Antonia on December 8, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Beautiful job!! I have an old transitional plane exactly the same as yours and have been meaning to restore it for years. You have inspired me to get off my ass and do it! I really like the plain metal finish instead of the painted and I just love the handle! Well done! :o) xx



  29. Andy B on December 8, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Really beautiful! Well done!



  30. Roy BAILEY on December 8, 2022 at 12:55 am

    Wow you made a wonderful job of that , that’s a beautiful plane and a one of now and it works well the way you did it great job well done 👏✔



  31. Darin on December 8, 2022 at 12:55 am

    nice



  32. Joaquín Luna on December 8, 2022 at 12:56 am

    Precioso!



  33. Greedlike on December 8, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Could’ve been a beautiful restoration of a dirty plane, but…



  34. True To The Craft on December 8, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Beautiful work!! Awesome shop!! I don’t know if I missed the video or if there isn’t one out yet, maybe a Shop Tour Video? Both in and out! You sir are an artist! 🤙🏾



  35. Brad Carroll on December 8, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Great to see you back at it!



  36. TIm on December 8, 2022 at 12:57 am

    Beautiful work



  37. Clare Date on December 8, 2022 at 12:58 am

    WHAT KIND OF PUP IS THIS!???



  38. TSG makes on December 8, 2022 at 12:58 am

    My brother brough me back almost the exact same plane and I’m planning to restaure it as ou did. Would mahogany be a good to replace the old wood ? Thanks and awesome video by the way



  39. Julius Rumpf on December 8, 2022 at 12:59 am

    Wow, this turned out insanely beautiful. I think you improved on the original design without taking it too far. Good call on leaving the ‘frame’ part raw! Also a nice touch that you shortened it using hand tools only. One question in that context: a lot of people take extreme care not to get metal filings on their workbench. You don’t seem to mind… any comment on that?

    Thanks for the great vid, I really liked the pace. Not too fast, not too slow… excellent!



  40. Lynx G on December 8, 2022 at 1:00 am

    Really nice job, really like the wood you chose and leaving in the sap wood definitely added to the beauty of it. Could you please do me one favour though, could you tighten the screw on the Knob a 1/16 of a turn for me so it lines up straight 😉



  41. Elwood Hindley on December 8, 2022 at 1:01 am

    I’m mesmerised by this gorgeous result. I agree the raw metal is devine. 💕💕



  42. Patricia May on December 8, 2022 at 1:01 am

    Sweet



  43. Jeremy McClanahan on December 8, 2022 at 1:01 am

  44. Huntsville Woodturning on December 8, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Chris, I really enjoy your videos. You seem like the kind of person I’d like to be around, you seem so patient. The world moves so fast, and watching you take the time to do some of these projects is fascinating – thank you for sharing!



  45. 13th Worker on December 8, 2022 at 1:05 am

    I’m proud of your work. It’s absolutely gorgeous. My late father was like you. After this project I’ll call you a master of wood. Thank you for sharing.



  46. William Cary on December 8, 2022 at 1:05 am

    I have a couple of old planes just like that wondering if it’s worth it. The added strength in the design increased my interest in doing it. Both are in fair shape and original so I have choices to make.



  47. Duca Schoenberg on December 8, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Woodglut plans are amazing!



  48. CrossGrain Wood Products,LTD on December 8, 2022 at 1:11 am

    Such a beauty! It was a great idea to use that wood. May I ask if you made the marking gauge you used in this video? Perhaps you can give us a look at it in more detail. I’ve been wanting to make one myself and have seen lots of designs but yours looks like it would sit better in my hand. I inherited my dads’ big hands, lol. It looks to have two blades for marking mortices if I’m seeing it correctly?



  49. ferrel allan on December 8, 2022 at 1:12 am

    I don’t think you impressed your dog with it he has paws so he’s not going to use it. But good job I’m impressed!



  50. alphapisigma on December 8, 2022 at 1:16 am

    Beautiful result. I would advise those watching that these transitional planes are great user planes just as they are. Don’t overlook them just because they are wooden!
