This beautifully plane was made by by Thos. or John Moon
sometime during 1795 - 1828 time period. Their shop was located
at 145 St. Martins Lane, London.
The plane has a skewed iron and wedged nicker along with a
screwed brass depth stop. The feature that really attracted me
to this example was the "boxing". In this case it isn't just
boxwood. Ebony is also added to a fillet on the corner.
Unfortunately, the whole rear section of ebony was missing.
Here we see the whole section of ebony is missing rear of the
nicker. Some off-cuts of ebony will fix this. The block I
have has a huge split in it so I will slowly and selectively cut

Some chocolate shavings...
