  Box for my Mathieson  


The weather turned sour here on The Ozark Border which gave me a good excuse...



... to hide in the shop the last couple of days and make a box for my Mathieson infill smooth plane.

I take this plane to teaching sessions and now it doesn't have to be wrapped up for transport. The wood I selected for this box is sapele which is tough as peckerwood lips with lots of cross grain so I used scrapers for most of the smoothing. The medallion in the end is pewter with some of its silver plate remaining.

I have had that old Mathieson plane for years after buying it for a song back in the good old days. It has a repair on its bun and the wood has been painted black by some former owner.
