Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter.

Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...
