This nicely crafted wood plane from the mid-1940s is still a functional tool. The body of the plane as well as its blade and wedge are all composed of tempered steel and then painted black. The back handle and front knob handle are both made of wood, also painted black. The phrase “Made in U.S.A.” appears adjacent to the back wooden handle.
Once a woodworking workshop item, this plane shows the years of use on its bottom and wooden handles. This 9.5-inch long plane is a great accent piece that is functional in the workshop as well as aesthetically pleasing for a “man cave.” This item makes for a wonderful addition to any vintage tool collection.
