Stanley #34 and beyond.....

good evening to you all ! a week ago , in a moment of boredom , waiting patiently for winter to go away , i was looking around the shop when i found a nice piece of cherry roughly 8" x 4" x 48" that i turned into the wood portion of some stanley transitional planes ( while collecting my full set of transitional planes i ended up with three extras for parts, etc) . this is where some may find it crazy but i extended these planes beyond the length of the #34 and ended up with a 32" , a 34" and a 36" plane . when i finished i ran them down the length of a piece of oak and cherry and each of them worked quite well ! so here they are - my super-sized transitionals ! the shortest one in the picture is a #34 for reference .thank you for your time !

OK, it's crazy. But I like it.

Not something I'd like to use everyday, but they sure are sweet looking!

good morning to you all ! actually "time" it was that plane you show that more or less inspired me to make my planes and i agree that cherry is a lovely wood for the sole of transitional planes !
