  Holtzapffel Scrub Plane Working on Yew Wood 1 of 2  

I got a huge slab of English yew the other week from my new wood guy.

I just thought I would show how gorgeous my Holtzapffel boxwood scrub plane is.

This is no ordinary scrub plane. This is the true Rolls Royce of scrub planes.

So beautifully does it scrub with its gaping mouth and razor sharp peeking camber that I had to force myself to accept the job was done, else there would have been nothing left of this huge slab!

This huge lump of English yew takes two to lift onto the bench.

Lots of bandsaw marks to remove and a few valleys to scrub out.

I always say shavings tell the story of the surface and these were
like scoops of Cornish ice cream!
