I have a very few of really good planes (send me the ones you don’t use!)
And I cant afford the really nice ones allot So I bought a book —“Making and Mastering Wood Planes” by David Finck. When I bought the book I ordered a Blade and chip breaker from his online store..
I got it about 90% done and couldn’t make the tiny pin to my satisfaction (I Saved up and bought a lathe and it took me like 1.5 minutes to make it!)...
Anyway this is an Osage Orange First attempt at making one. It started its life as a 12/4×14” Bit of Fire wood and after truing it up and then following the book it turned out a very finely adjustable wonderful end as you see it..
A 12.5” Smoothing Plane… that cuts really well!
I was so happy to try this and as long as I keep they same dimensions I can make as many planes as I need using the same Irons… So Next up is a Jack plane (if I can find the wood!) If not maybe I buy it..
