I have a soft spot for old tools. When I saw this old block plane one out in the wild, I had to buy it. I picked up two old W. Butcher block planes at a thrift store. One was in excellent condition and only required some light sharpening. The other required more work. In this video, I restore an 1830s W. Butcher block plane to working condition.
