Both of these hand planes are made with purple heart and brass. I like making hand planes and thought it would be fun to make a nice set. I did make another one like the one on the left and put it on ebay and it sold. So one other person in the world has a fine hand made tool that was hand crafted with a lot of time and love. The one on the right is my own type of a bull nose plane. I think I will make a few more but when I do I will use hock blades. The blades I used are some that I made from old plane irons.

They are about 5 1/2 inches long and 2 inches tall by 1 and 1/2 wide. And the brass was really hard to cut out. I used my 14 in. band saw with a old wood blade. That didnt last long. The blades are made out of old irons I had.
