Welcome to Lumberjocks! THis is a great site to learn and share the woodworking experience.

Great plane, would you be able to walk us through the construction process? Pictures are always welcome.

Welcome to Lumberjocks.
Very fine plane! Does it fly..? I never make a plane. I bought many planes and they do not fly.
Take care and work safe.

A great looking plane,

This doesn’t look like a weekend project.

Way to go!!!!! What a beauty, Never flown this type before, but looks like it would be a blast. You did a beautiful job on it. Have you had your certification flight yet? Really good looking work, I can’t even see the control line hook ups on the wing. LOL

How did you cut the wood for the windows so thin you can see through them and yet remain strong enough not to shatter? Wink Wink ;2D

At first I had to check and see if this was another of pashley's projects.

Seriously, this seems like it must have been a life changing experience in terms of time, dedication, and painstaking attention to detail. You MUST share more…
