My first homemade plane. Had a mulberry log i cut a couple years ago, split it into quarters and was wondering what i was gonna do with it. Picked up a box full of old woodies and some blades and decided to try making a plane. The throat is still rough, dont have any floats and i finished it with a little johnsons paste wax. Still needs some fine tuning but will will cut a pretty fine shaving already.

I LOVE it. I’ve never used Mulberry, but I sure want to now. A coffin smoother is one of my favorite planes. Just feels built for the hand.

Very nice job. The only problem is that making planes is addicting! You have now been warned!
