As you can tell, I’m on an infill kick these days. Here’s my #4 size. Its my own design.
Its made from a #4 sole, African rosewood, some scrap metal and a Hock iron. The chip breaker is from an old wood body plane.
Finish is Brush oil
Cap screw is a plumbing fitting with rosewood infill.
Its bedded at 55 degrees.
More pictures on my blog.
Edit: some re-work. I didn’t like the way this worked out, so it was cut and re-sand time. Along with a new thicker blade I made from some O-1 1/4” steel. Its much more comfortable now, and as you can see, the new iron works like a charm.
Thanks for looking.
