Well the mouth is pretty close. I think I will try it first and then make it wider if I need to later. I added three brass pins to keep the infills secure.

I switched the spindle to the belt on my sander.

Then I started the flattening of the sides. I am happy the pins are blending in pretty well.

As you can see in this photo the plane is still wider than the blade. I think I need to change belts. The one on the sander now is getting old.

After I get the sides down some more I will work on the rosewood wedge that holds the blade firm.

It is really coming together, looking forward to see it finished.
