E. Kennedy is listed as a toolmaker in 1928 in Exhibition St Melbourne.

Kennedy planes were invariably of Blackwood and well made. They are uncommon on the tool collecting scene which suggests that few were made. Blackwood timber (Acacia melanoxylon) is prized for fine furniture and cabinetmaking.
