I have been wanting to make a plane for a while now. I watched the handplane swap with great interest and a bit of regret that I couldn’t participate. Finally Christmas rolled around and I had a good excuse to make one for my brother in law. It was well received :)
Woods are maple, walnut, cherry strips, khaya crosspin and an ipe sole. Bedded at 50* with a 2” Hock iron. It’s kinda wide at about 2 11/16” or so, a little hard to hold on to, for me at least. 11 1/4” long. The mouth wound up wider than I wanted, but it still works fine. Overall this plane was a success and I will definitely be making more. I have a 1.5” Half Ashed iron almost ready for my next one.
