This photo shows the case for the Gardner plane.
I secured a brass shamrock on the end for an identification
The sides and ends of the case are made of mahogany, the sliding
lid is walnut, and the bottom is oak.
This photo is a close-up of string banding installed in the rim
of the case.
The lid is made of black walnut cut and sawn about 1915. The
thumb hold is ebony.
I used the Gardner plane to cut the rabbets on the margins of
the sliding lid.
