Nice job on repurposing the old plane. How well does it work?

This plane works good. The blade seems to get dull quicker than usual, but a larger area is smoothed by that time.

Wow what a great idea you need to do a blog on this with a bit more detail I’m sure there are plenty of damaged planes out the that could be salvaged & change the use to one of these.
Great job
