A “Razee” style jack plane, dimensioned and inspired by Scott Wynn in the book “Woodworkers guide to hand planes.”
Made of Purple Heart (off cuts from a semi trailer deck) and curly Maple. Wedge is made of Mopane.
1 3/4” X 3” Hock iron and chip breaker set soon to be replaced with a 4” Hock iron as it will be easier to tap with an adjustment mallet. The cross pins and index pins are brass for unusual interest.
A very massive plane to be used as a traditional jack plane but works very well.
The finish used was a coat of Tung oil and wax on the bottom.

Tap the nose? Shorten wedge?

Excellent design, good idea to add weight!

Great looking tool you have made. Looks like it works very well to boot. I have been thinking of making one for sometime that I saw in Shopnotes but havent got around to it as of yet. Are you going to put finish on it? Thx for sharing.
