it started as a prototype or test of a 56º angle blade bed. i liked how it worked on hardwood, so i made a handle and a striking button. this is the first jack plane i carve using only handtools (chisels and a modified handsaw). the beech wood is recycled from an old carpenters bench leg. there was a few cracks in the back of the piece so i put in 2 padouk butterflys which double as striking buttons. the Ekki wood i used in the sole is one of the hardest woods i have worked with.
