This was a project inspired by a couple guys who posted on a forum of mine Dallas, Big yin and Sylvain. it is made out of pine 3/4. I did not like the ones I saw on line so I put handle on it, I am pretty sure someone told me I could heck who are we kidding I would have anyway. It was quick and enjoyable now that this one worked out I will probably build another one you know for fun.

Cool, I need to make one of these as well. Nicely done.

Nice. What did you use for the iron? Looks like a pry-bar. Makes me try to remember if I threw away that crowbar from which I broke one of the ears. (Notice how I tried to avoid the grammar police by placing the preposition in the body of the sentence … at.)

I like this one alot, I’ve been ebaying it for a nice used router plane, I might just have to make one instead. How well does the steel hold an edge?

So far it works well and has not lost it’s edge, although I have not used it a lot. There are a couple others one here who have made nicer ones that maybe able to tell you better, as they have had theirs longer.
