Here is a hand plane I recently made. The body is Walnut and the pin is Padauk. The pin is mortised into the sides and spins freely in the body. The pin has a flat on one side for the wedge which hold in the Hock blade. The bed is angled at 50 degrees.
Surprisingly it works well and takes nice shavings. If I had to do it again (which I may) I would make the pin a little smaller and the mouth a little bigger because it sometimes clogs.
I didn’t spend too much time making it look nice and I left a lot of the band saw marks since it provided a grip in the front. The finish is just wax.
Thanks for looking.
