I would like to acknowledge John M. Whelan and his book Making Traditional wooden planes.
that’s where the design for this plane came from, very good book if your interested in making some
of your own wooden planes.. He provides three different methods of creating wooden planes.
I made this one out of white oak for the body, cherry for the tote, and ash for the wedge. the iron came from an old coffin plane that like most that old had blown out one side.. its a little tough to fettle it correctly the first time, but once set properly it works great.. I really enjoyed the build and look forward to making some more in different sizes.. he even provide instruction for making plow planes, rabbit, fillister, hollows and rounds. it is quite the book on wooden plane building.. So thanks again John…
hope you like my plane… Papa
