I made this plane as a gift for a friend. He took a woodworking course to build a chair, and ran out of time. Hasn’t had any luck finding a shop to get some time in, so the pieces for the chair are sitting on a shelf in his apartment. I was hoping to inspire him to complete the project by giving him a tool he could use without needing a shop. We’ll see what happens.
Jatoba body with beech stripe. Ipe sole. Tung oil and wax finish.
45 degree bed, Hock iron. I barely opened the mouth, couldn’t even fit a sheet of paper through. Told him he had to put the finishing touches on it himself.
Just about kept this one for myself.
