Restored Plane

Hey Everyone,

I've been gone for a while (bought my first house then gutted it and renovated it.) I've done a few non-house wood projects but nothing worth posting. Now that I have my own place and more room I'm hoping get back to some woodworking. I just picked up a Ridgid TS3650 in great shape. Super excited to have my first table saw. Enough rambling. Let's get to the plane.

I grew up in Brazil (Parents are American) and just didn't grow up around the woodworking culture. My dad had literally one woodworking tool - an old plane he had taken to Brazil 30+ years ago. I believe it was his grandfathers before.

It is a corsair great neck plane. I know these are a budget plane but considering I didn't own a plane and also appreciated the sentimental attachments I was glad to get my hands on it.

I ended up spending a lot of time flattening the sole (granite tile and sand paper) and then sharpening everything. Here's the finished result. It's definitely not perfect but I'm glad to have done it and now looking forward to finding some others to keep learning with.

Feel free to ask any question or give me any advice. I appreciate it.

Thank you!

To the experience restorers out there, what finish do you use on the tote and knob? I'm not sure what type of wood it is. During sanding it had a pinkish hue that made me think it was cherry but it didn't smell like cherry. Plus, the knob has those two lighter lines. The pink might be coming from the former finish that has a very thick red finish. I saw one person who recommended shellac and then possible a spray enamel. Thoughts?
