Bevel-up Plane

I haven't worked on this for a while, so I started up again. I finished cutting out the lever cap blank, and finished the handles. For the lever cap, I cut a chamfer on the lower end of the piece, I then made a round over with coarse files, and polished it up. I still have to make the keyhole shaped hole. For the handles, I put on three coats of Formby's High-Gloss tung oil, and a coat of wax. I think they turned out pretty nice.
