How long to the soles of the plane last before  you need to level them again?

I suppose the different woods last longer than others. The one I made 8 years ago is Tiger wood and does not show any wear, and it has had light-moderate use.

Hello Herb

I agree with you that it looks like Leopardwood Never heard of it before. That explains the growling I sometimes hear in the shop. Now I have to go out in the shop and put it in a cage! :ChinScratch:

They are very similar, only I think the Leopard wood seems darker.

Before I looked that up, I didn't know what a Travisher is. I will have to think about that one for awhile.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
