I really wanted a scraper plane. I didn’t have the money to buy one. So I made this one. It has a stainless steel blade. There’s a piece of leather between the blade and the frog.The leather eliminated all chance of chatter. I dovetailed the handle in. The woods I used were Purple Heart for the bottom Jatoba on top of that. It has red Oak for the sides and the frog and the handles are walnut and Sequoia. It has a 3 1/2 inch wide blade.my prototype worked so well I wanted a wider one. I found the plans for one in my inlay book. It had a blade deflector this one works really well without one.
