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.

Uh, Don, I think your plane has rabies, pic 6 shows it foaming at the mouth.

Better send it to me for safe disposal.

Very nice build, very nice. Since no one else asked, I will: what #4 sole did you use? Or was it an unknown when you obtained it? Thanks for showing.
