This is the first tool I made in my endeavor to hand tool woodworking. At this time I was still using the powered machines in the woodshop on the base. Man will it hog off wood!

An admirable undertaking, building everything with just hand tools and sweat. I prefer to do it that way myself. I find that in order to put food on the table (since I work wood for a living) though, I need a quicker method of getting the work done. That equals machines. However, I have the occasional client request no machines be used in the production of their furniture. I do it for them gladly. I also charge more, as it is taking up more of my time and skill.

Nice, did you saw it down the middle to cut out the “frog” area and glue it back together? Or did you Chop it out from a solid piece ?

The Chamfer on the plane is a nice detail.

Thank you everyone for the words of encouragement.
Mochoa- I did use the “Krenov” method -resawing, and laminating- I just wanted a tote and for it to look more traditional.

Since you did the lamination where does the cut fall (I ask because of the way you secure the wedge)

Great job, think I might try making some of the more “traditional” wooden planes. The Krenov style plans are only better for fine work, not for heavy planing.

RGtools- By “where does the cut fall” , I assume you mean the sides of the plane that are cut off, then reglued back together after you have shaped the bed, escapement, abuttment, and mouth. Is that right?

JaLatham, usually traditional style planes like the one you made, if laminated, were cut right down the middle. If you cut the sides off like Krenov then that’s a little different. I think that’s what RG was getting at. I had that question too. It sounds like you cut both sides off. Where did you see those plans.
Great plane, thanks for posting.
