My first wooden hand plane :)
Maple and Hickory body with Apple wedge and handle. 13cm long by 4cm wide. The blade was the only usable thing from an old plane.
I am happy with how it works and I can now see how plane making is addictive.

Excellent looking little hand plane! That wood curling out is proof that it works well! Nice job!

Nice job on the plane. The blade is all you need.

This is a nice shop-built tool.
