This is the plane I made for NateDog for the 2013 Plane Swap. It’s made of red oak, and is sort of a hybrid between krenov and traditional.
It’s made with 4 pieces, 1 for the bed and tote, one for the toe, and one on each side. This turned out to be good, as I could make multiple attempts at the sides before I settled on ones I was happy with (I believe I made 5 sides total).
The tote was then shaped out of the piece that’s laminated in the middle.
The bed is 55° and is an older 2” ECE iron.
Made with all hand tools too :-)
