Hey all, a while ago I had the opportunity to take one of Lee Valley’s seminars on making a wooden hand plane. It was a very interesting and informative seminar and I had a lot of fun. I figured I may as well share what I made.
I certainly plan on making a few more of my own hand planes in the future. You can see in the last pic it certainly works well, although those are rather thick shavings, I can fine tune it for thinner passes. Lee valley supplied the wood and nice Hock irons. The body is white oak, with purple heart and walnut for the cross pin and wedge. I shaped the body to fit my hand nicely in use.
Thanks for looking and comments welcome as always.
