I built this plane about a week ago using a hock blade and cap iron and then the plans you can purchase on the hock site and I gotta say it was a lot of fun. First off…it was less than a one day project and everynow and then its fun to work one of those in…especially in between long projects, in addition this thing cuts amazingly well…better than some very expensiuve planes i own…this is probably due to the fact that the Hock blade is better than any other blade i’ve seen..particularly the blade/cap iron sets for krenov style planes…no joke its 3/16” thick chatter is a non-issue. The body is made from hard maple with an oak dowell…I know its nothing too fancy but Function over form in this case…I may shape it sometime down the line but as of now i like it how it is.
I documented the build on my blog here if you want to check out the full build
