Hey guys and girls. I’d like to share the first bit of progress on the jointing plane I am working on. Its inspired by this plane a saw while researching Norse boat building tools.
Mine is made out of Cocobolo with two pieces of Oak glued to the sides. I just got the shape roughed out today, and am still thinking about what I want the finished product to look like. Do I want to go all fancy and put the horse heads on it, or just keep it simple and functional. Right now I am leaning towards simple and functional as I plan on using this tool heavily, and I don’t think the horse heads will feel comfortable in my hands while working.
Any ways, here it is so fare.
Funny guy had to stick his head in ^
Thanks for looking!
