Hello felows,this is my first time here at this forum.

First I would like to say I’m from Brazil and my English is not so good.Please sorry for any wrong grammar concordance but I’ll make a big effort in divide some experience here using my hobbiest experience and some challenges because in Brazil We can’t find good quality hand tools as easy as USA.

I just finished a chisel plane based in models from Lie Nielsen,Lee Valley and Woodriver.I used a brass plate and a Brazilian wood called “balsamo”.The knob was made using a holesaw and rounded at small router.

The blade used is a Stanley #65 block plane.

I used a 15° as an angle of tool.The blade has a chanfre at 20°

The result is showed at pictures.The plane works very well and I’m very happy with the performance.

Thanks for attention

Emerson
