Wood for the Mitre plane 

Lovely piece of Box - over 100 years old - counted the rings - around before WW1 - amazing really.
Got enough out of this for a few planes - mouth inserts - wedges etc - got some minor spalting which looks lovely - but may be lost int he final cut - in the workshop now -- chilling out before I tame it into submission.

All from one log of Box - lots of potential sitting here...
