The planes are made with,
The one on right is Maple and Brazilian Cherry
The left one is Purple heart.
Second picture is two scrapers, one maple and the other yew. Blades are regular scraper blades cut in two.
The third pic is a chisel plane made from Myrtle wood
The last pic is some scratch stocks, one made from Maple and the other is Purple heart.
All the Irons I made are 0-1 steel.

Some times its more fun making tools that using them.

Nice tools, love the simplicity of the chisel plane, the other planes are great to.

But you should not have them on that slab, one just can’t take your eyes of it. :P

Great job – thanks for sharing.

I just made my first plane and I am inspired to make more of my own tools. In fact, I just got the iron for a shoulder plane I will make next, but that will not be the end of it.
