This plane is a small smoothing plane I call the “Baby”. I based it on a small wooden block plane I picked up at a second-hand tool shop.
It is made from Goncalo Alves and features a 55 degree pitch. The iron is 40mm wide and 3mm thick, O1 tool steel. I inset a boxwood wear strip in front the of (very tight!)mouth. Finished with boiled linseed oil and wax, it feels real good in the hand and takes a fine shaving.
