Here’s the plane I made for the swap. The main body and sides are jatoba, the cross pin is cocobolo, and the wedge is mora (I think, it was a scrap of exotic wood around the shop.) Sized like a Stanley number 9 roughly. The cross pin was turned on the lathe and then flatted on one side.

The cross pin is just an extra touch of class. You went the extra mile there Chris! Beautiful all around.

Nice body shape, Chris. Looks very comfortable to work with. I like the way you flattened one side of the cross pin. Bet it holds the iron solidly!
