I really like wooden hand planes and while working with some Bolivian Rosewood I realized I needed a plane with a higher angle to avoid tearout. Well, since I had some hard maple and walnut left over I decided to make one. I had a couple of questions and sent Ron Hock an email. He answered me back almost immediately and gave me some good advice. (Thanks, Ron!) I laminated some of the maple and walnut to make the wedge. Sanded it to 220 grit and put several coats of Danish oil on it. Being a high angle plane (50 degrees) and not having an adjustment knob it’s a little finicky to get set up but once it is it works like a charm!
I would have taken more pictures in the beginning but my camera broke and I just got a new one. I had some from my phone but they weren’t very good.
