For a while I’ve wanted to try a 55 degree high angle frog plane. I had thought about building one, but I’ve never really been taken by the hammer adjuster type planes. I have a lot of them, and I do use them once in a while, but truth be told, I prefer the Stanley type blade adjustment. I even prefer it over the Norris type adjusters.
I decided to try using a typical frog on a wooden plane. As I was designing it, I decided on a transitional frog, because it gave more wood under the frog.
Main body is whit oak, front body is wenge, sides are maple.
