I decided to build a real plane. This one took some what more than three hours. This 17 inch Razee style fore plane is made of oak and Jarrah. The oak creates an infill surrounded by Jarrah sides, sole and tote. I used Kernov’s style wedge holder and looked to Phil Edwards to see how this thing went together. Then changed it to suit myself. I used the pegs to aline parts and add accents. I used a 2 3/8 Stanley iron and chip breaker. The wedge is soft Maple and the strike is hard maple. I fnished it with a coat of shelac and several coats of laquar. The sole got a coat of wax. I felt good enough about this one that I signed it. With due acknolegement to Phil Edwards, Ron Hock and the College of the Redwoods. It really works! I couldn’t resist and made a whole pile of shavings.

Tom,

Great work! That’s nice that you can “create” your own tools. Even better to begin to use them to make other projects.

Tom I think you out did yourself on this one. That is a sharp piece of work and is too purdy to use. Excellent!

I think it certainly deserves signing. It’s an original Angle Infill. That is one sweet plane.

Did you cut a plough for the tote and infill against the back or did you drop in into a mortise? You decided to go with the cross-dowels in wood (especially bearing against the wedge), is that working well? Inquiring minds want to know…

They already had a portly, irascible, goofy old white man. Have to pull my schtick here for free. ROTFL.
