Hi Folks
This is a plane a customer requested – a shoulder plane with a 10mm width. The timber is Santos Rosewood and it has a solid brass sole. This plane is tiny, measuring 140mm long and 45mm tall. It is a little delicate but works perfectly.
I found working on such a small scale quite enjoyable (if a little nerve-wracking!)
Hope you like,

Phil, I like the way you rounded the brass into the throat area which helps give the plane a little grace or movement. I like it! I might even try this one. Thanks!!
