There were many planes made for the 2013 Plane Swap, but this one is mine.
I made it of laminated red oak and black walnut in the Krenov style. The plane is about 11” long, 3” wide, and ~2lbs. The iron is 2-1/4” wide and 3/16” think for a nice, chatter-free shaving with no chipbreaker. I found the iron in the clearance bin of my local Woodcraft and was quite happy with the quality of the blade. The bed angle is 50 degrees and the mouth relief is 60 degrees.
After some playing with getting it set right, I was able to take some satisfactory shavings with a piece of ash before taking some pictures and shipping it off to Don Broussard. Don, I hope it serves you well for the years to come. This is the first plane I have ever made, so I hope it turned out satisfactorily.
Thanks to Don W. for setting up and running the swap. We’re all very thankful for your hard work in coordinating all of this.
