  My Study of Plane Fences Continuing 2 of 4  

This progress photo shows the fence after gluing two boards together and shaping a profile that makes it easy to hold. The thumb hook on the front of the fence makes it easy to provide downward and lateral pressure while using the plane.

This photo is another progress shot showing the fence securely mounted to the left side of a block plane.

This photo shows the hardware I selected. It consists of two old brass toilet bowl bolts cut to the proper length, two brass washers, two old brass square nuts, and two cap nuts.

To add interest to the side of the fence, I inlayed a piece of rosewood.

After applying an oil finish to the fence I mounted it on the plane.
The cap nuts match the plating on the plane's knuckle cap.
