This is a plane I made about 10 years ago but recently remodeled. The first one was a bit ordinary looking. Another plane I use every day as it cuts well and fits my hand snugly. It was the only piece of Queensland Walnut I have ever had. The Ironbark was from Australia also. Ox bone used instead of Ivory.
Unusually I purchased a new Stanley block plane blade, turned it over and made a cap iron. Normally use reconditioned old blades from dead antiques. Its a lovely little plane to use that can take the rigors of a workshop. I give it a re-polish every now and again to restore the looks. Based on Krenov principles. These have served me well and I see little need to go past them.
