Wood River makes a solid user plane at a good price. The number 6 handles a really fair amount of work for your first “real” plane. If you can, grab a second blade that you can grind a camber into so you can hog material off with it. Sold at woodcraft. Keep in mind the kind of work you would like to do though since that will affect the size plane you would need. if your tend towards smaller work go with a 5 instead.

Also don’t forget sharpening gear.
