Created for the LJ 2013 Plane Swap. Recipient was GMatheson.
Body made from jatoba and beech, with an ipê sole and walnut wedge. Finished with tung oil. The iron is from Nice Ash, 1.5” wide and 1/4” thick.
My initial plan called for a crosspin, per normal Krenovian plane construction. I decided to go with a more traditional eared mouth to create more room. It seemed to work out well.
I always do a plan when making a plane, to work out shaping details, placement of the mouth, etc. Very easy to do, and it is cool to see if the end result looks anything like the original vision. In this case, pretty much so :-)
Hope you like it, Greg!
