This is the first plane I have attempted. I got inspiration from Mafe, and his wonderful work. I had an old and dry piece of oak batten in the store doing nothing, so I thought I would try this. I rushed it, so it is a bit rough around the edges, and elsewhere! I didn’t spend enough time jointing so the joints to the sides are a little open. I fitted the dowel in the wrong place so the iron sits at the wrong angle. Overall though I am quite pleased with it. I learned a lot, and really want to try another soon. The iron is from a stock of irons we have in the college where I work. It is from a 6 1/4” stanley block plane.
