Here is the plane I made for the swap that I sent to Sanding2Day. The plane sides are lacewwod. The center is white oak, and the sole is black and white ebony. This plane seemed like it was a little finicky when setting it, and I’ve not had that problem before. I think it is probably because I waxed the bed where the iron sits.

The iron is from Nice Ash Planes and is super sweet.

Haven’t had much difficulty setting it and it works great… It has become my go to block plane! Took it into this months St. Louis Woodworker’s Guild meeting show and tell and it received numerous compliments… Thanks again!

Dan, I’m glad to hear it is working! Have you tried pulling it much?

The swap kind of inspired me, and I’ve made two more planes since.
