    "Modern" style is really starting to grow on me. This is beautiful. Kudos to your wife on the design. Very creative. Did she specify the woods or leave that up to you?

    No chance of anything but water based or shellac. That is what veered me to wipe on finishes over 20 years ago. I didn't like the look of the first water borne polys. I think things seem to have...

    The tote is rosewood, so probably is a replacement. I've seen a couple of Stanley planes where there is a band of sapwood on either the tote or knob.

    I've not been to Canterbury, but I have visited Pleasant Hill near Harrodsburg Kentucky. Definitely should be on the list of anyone interested in the Shakers and their furniture and way of life.

    Thanks Stan. I asked because they looked like a mess waiting to happen. I can certainly see how they would have worked traditionally, but wouldn't want to mess with it if I didn't have to.
