The recent plane swap has inspired me to build a couple more planes. This one is made of white oak, birdseye maple, had has accent stripes of mahogany and walnut. It is approximately 13” long and has a bed angle of 50 degrees.

Great choice of wood. At 13” long are you using it as a jack(cambered) or smoother.

It has a straight iron in it now, but I would use it as a jack. I was getting .002 thickness shavings with it. I just haven’t taken the time to camber the iron.
I wanted to try my hand at a Japanese style pull plane so I set the iron way back on this one. I have no experience making them, but figured I had to start somewhere.

Very Nice. I was going to ask if it was a pull type (Japanese) plane. Questions answered. Very cool.

All you plane makers are awesome!! I’ve been watching(lurking) for the past couple of days and to be honest I’m simply astounded by the craftsmanship. It really wants to make me try my hand at making a plane for my self. Maybe a low angle shoulder plane.
