I just finished my new smoothing plane and would like to share the photos with you guys. I used a block of Aranga wood i had lying around for this project. The block was tough to work on that I probably spent more time honing my chisels than cutting the slot for the blade and lock. I sculpted the palm rest from balayong wood and was easier to work on. The blade was repurposed from a worn down Blu-mol hacksaw blade. These old blades make into the best plane blades I’ve ever used. The lock for the blade was cut, bent and polished from a 2” GI pipe.
The plane is 2-1/4” wide by 11 inches long.
Have a great weekend guys!
