Fixing a Tote
The tote on the jointer plane was broken, not too badly, but enough that it became uncomfortable after a while. So I made a new piece from walnut(not exactly a subtle repair, but that was all I had on hand), and glued it on. Since the original wood was beech, I used normal glue, instead of epoxy. The glue-up is very straight-forward if you keep the block the piece was cut from.
