Hello everybody, This is a shooting plane and 2 adjusting hammers. The plane is made from rock maple and the sole is lignum. The chip breaker and blade was ordered from hock. The hammers are made from birch and walnut with bronze heads. The plane cuts really well. For anyone that is interested in making a plane, the book Making and Mastering Wood Planes by David Finck will tell you everything in detail to complete this project. Thanks for looking… Ron

I second the recommendation for that particular book. I haven’t made one of the planes, but it was a great read and I know a lot about how to make the planes.

Peter, The hammer heads started out as 7/8” round stock. I used a bandsaw to cut them to length
of 2 1/2”. I used a lathe to turn one down to 5/8” and left the other at 7/8”. I then used a drill press
to drill 3/8” holes. A little buffing to shine them up and you have shop made hammer heads.
Thanks for looking… Ron
