sure is a monsterplane but not for the normel use
you use it upside down as the copper does it
where you drag your object over it indstead
of pushing the plane over the oblect

wow that is a big plane. i know a lot of old sources define a jointer plane as being about 36 inches or above. but that is even larger. probably used to surface large tabletops or something. i couldn’t see it being used upside down since you usually do that on smaller items and the beds just too long.

It’s a cooper’s plane like Dennis said. It is used upside down to angle the edges of wooden barrel staves. The staves are pushed into the plane as opposed to the plane being pushed into the staves.

Yes, it’s a cooper’s plane and that spot on the front end is where a tripod would have been affixed so it could be held off the ground while planing.
