Yes, it could be said that I have been on an infill binge recently. This little plane has a 1 1/4” O1 iron, is just over 4” long, and is perfect for those small jobs. This is my take on a design by Malcolm McPherson. Sides are aluminum, infill is walnut. I went with a little bit of a steampunk look as I used purely stuff that I had on hand to prove out the idea. It is very comfortable, though the lever cap screw needs to be larger, and the lever cap needs to be thicker for better position in hand. All in all, a win. I am working on a pair of these with refinements, one of which will be for the plane swap going on. We’ll see how they pan out!
