I recieved word from Chris (Wally331) that he got the plane I sent him on Friday. Here it is! White oak and wenge, with a 50° bed, and a 1 1/2” Hock iron.
The adjusting mallet is walnut and hickory.
Between full time dad duties and several unexpected home repairs, I did not get as much time to work on it as I would have liked. I was working on this right up until the last minute. In fact, I timed it so close that I missed making it to the UPS store to ship it off by about 5 minutes on the day of the shipping deadline. I wound up sending it the following Monday.
This is the third plane I have made, and by far the best one. I definitely see more of these in my future :)
Another attempt to show the grain.
Tightest mouth I have achieved yet!
