This transitional hand plane was most likely made by the Ohio Tool Company around the turn of the century. This restoration needed a lot of attention as some parts were missing or user-made.

I've used a yoke from a donated Stanley No. 3. I also added a jatoba sole since the restoration process took off some thickness and it is much harder than the original beech.

Shavings came off great from the black walnut!

Thanks to wood.work.LIFE for sending me the plane. Check that channel out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdku2KLuIVRFwx1PVnjRm1w
