After recently making two smoothing plane and being satisfied with the results, I put my site on a block plane. This time I chose rosewood and curly maple piece for extra durability. Again I use a Hock blade assembly and here is the finish product. I’ll post some cutting ribbon at a later date. Thanks for viewing Blackcherry.

Wonderful! I need to muster up the courage to try to build one. What do I have to lose?

Beautiful ribbons. Looks like you could use the dark ribbons as an edge veneer.

Thanks for all the input LJ. These really are easy and very useful tools and I can’t say enough about the Hock blades. They do need a refine sharping but the results are amazing. Its a great way to use scraps of figured woods. Next I will tackle the joiner plane so the set will be complete. Thanks again…Blkcherry

Obviously, it cuts as good as it looks.

That’s a beautiful plane – you did a great job on that.
