This small router plane is made of white oak and walnut. The iron is made from an old allen wrench. I shaped it on the grinder, heat treated it back to a good hardness, then sharpened.
The locking screw that holds the iron in place is just a cabinet knob with it’s screw epoxied into it and the head cut off. There is a brass threaded insert that receives the knob. Originally I was going to use a thumbscrew, but it just looked too ugly so I had to get creative.
Finished with pure tung oil and some wax for the bottom.
