I decided I would try to make a replica of this vietnamese plow plane I got a couple of weeks ago. I just need to add the hardware and it should be finished. I have to cut the skate. the Wood is Jatoba, Padauk and American Cherry. it was fun.

Update: I finally finished adding the hardware, I screwed in the 2 adjustment rods, and Added a skate at the botton, made the plane blade and added a retention pin to hold the wedge and blade. it’s all finished and it works great!

I don’t even know what a plow plane is used for. Shows you my sophistication level. That wood choice is perfect. It will outlast the pyramids!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

thanks ! the plow plane cuts grooves and Dados. I am going to attempt to make some blades for it. It is a lot of fun to use. All of the wood was scrap wood I had laying around.

Looks nice, does it also work nice? I have been considering buying the veritas metal plow but after seeing yours I might attempt building one. What did you use for the blade?

Very Nice. As for Hardware I have picked up Plane Blades\parts and other tool\knife steel at Swap Meets and Flea Markets during the summer for less than a buck.
