Hi there,

I have finished my mini plane and it works very nicely. It is made from scrap in the bin at my woodworking club, I think the sides are Banksia and the centre section Jarrah.

I cut the blade from an old plane blade using a Dremmel and had a small piece of round brass in my shed.

It was a fun project that was inspired from the pages of LJ, I did two while I was at it and still need to cut a blade and finish off this ones wee brother.

Looks nice but how big is it and where are the shavings ? LOL
Looks like you got enough iron left for a few more .
