refurbished a hand plane

I didn't need another one - this is the exact same model as the one I use, that was my grandfather's... but I couldn't let it sit and rust away.  I hand carved (obviously) a replacement front handle and found a screw to replace the lost one.  Got all the rust off, and put the blade on my grinding wheel - ready to go!

Door project, in process

So, of course it wasn't a simple thing.  I ended up cutting down and finding lots of rebar.  So, there was a lot of sledge hammer work....
