My latest infill.
#4 size, length is 9”, width is 2”.
Metal is low carbon steel from mcmaster carr.
Infill is ebonized walnut. The reason for the ebonizing was “just to try something different”. I seen one I liked that was ebonized walnut, and I had walnut.
Iron is a Hock.
Chip breaker is 1/8” low carbon steel from mcmaster carr.
Lever cap is brass.
It is bedded at 50 degrees.
Its not perfect. Its got a few flaws to show it was done by hand, and it was the first dovetailed plane I’ve made. Its got a few dings where the peen didn’t hit exactly where I was aiming.
All-in-all I’m very happy with the outcome.
