the T&G plane. The wood is Cormier per the 1929 catalog I found, which
appears to be a member of the apple / pear / rose family. Commonly known
as Service Tree in Europe, and supposedly 8 growing in Luther Burbank's
experimental garden in Sebastapol. So this makes me think Apple would be a
better choice than beech, and a better choice than going to Sebastapol and
looking for down tree branches (the trees are ~100 years old!)
