What is it?
A gentleman dropped by the Fredericton Region Museum office yesterday to see if I could help him identify his latest yard sale purchase. A beautiful tool, we expect it’s a plane. We both agreed that it is a stunning piece made with what appears to be bird’s eye maple. It looks like a dual purpose tool with a plane on one side and some sort of groove maker on the other. The odd feature of the plane is the curved shape of the tool itself and the curve on the blade. I hope that you can see that in the picture of the blade that I took.
More information would be appreciated. If you have any thoughts on the piece to share, please write them in the comments below. Thank you!
