This is a plane I made to clean up Rabbits and Tenons. It is out of Hickory and Maple. And so goes the addiction.

I sharpened a piece of spring steel from a friend. Hickory and Maple and a Cherry wedge. Also it works very well. I used it for a while before I put the finish on it.

I would love to try one of these. I’ve never attempted a plane before and have been trying to justify buying a shoulder plane from Veritas or LN, but can’t ever quite seem to take the plunge. Perhaps this is way I should go too.

Great job!

Thanks for sharing this.

This is a nice looking plane. I would love to try something like this as well so I can understand the addiction.

Well done.

Just echoing everyone else. Can’t ever have too many “atta boys”. The design seems sound. I’m wondering how well the iron will hold an edge. I’ve got some scrap steel here and there and am never too sure of what type of steel it is as far as it’s manufacturing. I’m wondering if I can modify an old chisel to fit a shoulder plane like this. Back to the drawing board. Keep em Coming.
