Most woodworkers appreciate things that are well-made, fashioned by hand and extraordinarily useful. So it’s little wonder that Wayne Anderson stays quite busy. From a small basement workshop in Elk River, Minn., Anderson makes custom infill planes one at a time to sell to woodworkers and collectors. Unlike many manufactured tools, Anderson’s planes marry solid plane mechanics with fluid curves that would be difficult – if not impossible – to create using machines. One recent chariot plane from his workshop resembles a scarab beetle. The front grip of the small plane at right is filed into the shape of a curved acanthus leaf.
