From the first time I got a Plane to 'sing'
#8
  
This goes back quite a few years.   I had got something like a Corsair cheapo Bailey-pattern plane from the antique mall, and got it working again, scary sharp.   I remember using that plane to slick-up the bandsawn pieces on this model-car I built from scratch.    It's still a conversation piece in our TV room:


   

Happy woodworking,

Way cool is right.  Way cool, and then some.  Very nice.  Thanks for posting the pic.

That looks great. It's made of what, at least four different wood species?

Thanks!
    Yes, the species are different but have tended to blend a bit closer over the years:
Roof, Bumpers, etc:   Padauk
Headlights, etc.:   Myrtle
Body & Wheels:    Walnut
Fenders:   Cherry
Grille:   Zebrawood.

That car is terrific, and the use of zebrawood as the grill was a stroke of genius. 10/10, sir.

Nice job!

Poor plane was left out of the picture. Sad
