This plane is a low angle plane – the blade is bedded at 33 degrees. This makes it perfect for working on end grain. I made the plane fairly heavy to give it plenty of inertia when cutting – it seems to carry though the cut a lot easier without stalling. It also works great on the shooting board (see picture)
The timber is Goncalo Alves and the iron is 6mm thick O1 steel, 50mm wide.
Finish is boiled linseed oil and wax.
