I’m not taking woodshop this year, so I haven’t been able to do a lot of woodworking. A man at my church has been letting me use his woodshop, and in two days I have created this. It is made of rosewood, maple, bloodwood, and wenge.

You’ve got a beautiful plane! I have built several from the Wood magazine plans. They work great to use as a decoration or as a shop tool. So far, all I’ve built have been gifts, and I’m going to make more of them before Christmas.

What a great looking plane! Well done, I have been meaning to make this for sometime when I saw this in a magazine.
