I needed a new plane so I figured I should make one. This one is about 7” long. Its made from scrap maple and purpleheart with a lacewood wedge. The bar is a piece of 3/8” aluminum rod (the aluminum might be a little soft since it has already bent – but still works fine) and i put a 1-3/4” Hock blade in it.
Its my first experience with wooden planes and I’m very impressed. It glides over the board and is actually very easy to adjust. I made a small maple hammer to adjust it so i don’t have to wack it with my big framing hammer.
I also plan on making a shoulder plane and a jointer plane in the near future.
