I took a Hand Plane Class and didn’t like the way the end product looked. So I instantly decided to try and make another one. This one is made of Alder and Purpleheart. I don’t know if I would use Purpleheart again for the sole. I could not use my jointer to flatten the sole so I did it by hand. It seemed to take forever. I also spent quite a lot of time filing the mouth.
The plane is longer than it needs to be but I am thinking I might want to add a handle later. The shape is more in line with what I like—clean, long lines. It works quite well but there is definitely more tuning required.
Next up…the one plane missing from my current arsenal: a jointer.
