Hey Guys,

Here’s that backing out plane that you guys were asking to see. The body of the plane is beach, and hand rest as well as the wedge are teak.

This plane is very comfortable and does its job very well, the sole of the plane is convex making backing out planks much easier, although grinding down the lie-nielsen iron to a curve was kind of painful!

Since these pictures were taken Ive put a french polish on the plane, and once the finish was on it was almost too beautiful to use!

I just found a picture of the plane before the hand rest customization and threw that up there as well, and yes, the hand rest was an after thought, I think I chose the most difficult way of doing this!

The dovetail isn’t perfect but nice enough.

-- Zach

Not too many people around that knows what a backing planes is. Even less who has actually used one!
