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.
