« Part 1: shoulder plane based on Mafe and Div info Part 2 of DIY HAND PLANES series Part 3: wedge and blade »

OK…...I’ve now pulled the clamps from the glued plane. Looking really good and I’ve given the whole plane a sanding with 240 grit paper. Re-sanded the sole with series of sandpapers (up to 600grit) over an absolutely flat granite slab…...and then finished with the first coat of Danish Oil. .....I am really happy with the way its coming up.

I’ll start on the wedge next…..and then comes the blade…....

ok….here are some more photos in the sun…...colours come out a bit better….need to go over with another coat or two of the Danish oil…...and perhaps look at some wax coating for the sole….anyway…...

Looking nice! I’m curious to see how well the bed holds up at the mouth with that low angle.

Wolfdaddy….so am I. It will be interesting to see how this wooden one holds up. I don’t anticipate putting too much load onto the blade with the wedge….as long as the load is transferred evenly ..it might be ok. I have seen several commercial shoulder planes with that exact problem….

Looks wonderful and yes a good mix.
Danish oil! Makes the Dane here happy laugh.
Best thoughts,
