Let me be the first to say… very very nice!! I really like it, and the one piece tote is some amazing work in itself!

That is one of the prettiest planes I’ve seen. Marvelous design of the tote (and all the curves).

Boy that is one beautiful plane and it looks like it works so fine! I have a Stanley plane but a hand made one is much more appreciated. With all the planes I have seen here on LJ’s, this one is really getting me in the mood to make one.Maybe it is the delicate chips you show!! Where did you get the blade? Is there a basic plan for building them? It seems that 50 degrees is a good angle, too.

... all I want to say is SHOWOFF!! Seriously, well done. It is a good looking tool. Funny, I have a tray of my first plane shavings… so I know how you must feel after making a plane with the results of those great curls.
