This is my first attempt at making a wooden hand plane. It isnt anything fancy by any means! i made this one kind of basic just so that i could see if i understood the process of making wooden hand planes.
i have a bunch of 8/4 ash so i cut out a blank and milled it up! the plane iron is from David Finch. i know alot of people use Hock irons but i wanted to try the DF irons and see how good they are… and i must say, these irons and chipbreakers are awesome! thick, solid and easy to sharpen! plus i like the black finish he puts on his irons (cheesy i know)! I know i have more sharpening to do to the iron so dont look too close!!! i couldnt wait to try it!!
like i said this was just a study/ practice plane…. now that i know i can make a plane that cuts smooth ribbons of wood i am going to make a bunch more! its addicting!
