« Part 3: Day Three Part 4 of Lie-Nielsen Shoulder/Rabbet Plane Kit series Part 5: Final Cut »

I started squaring the sides to the sole on my granite sharpening slab. I started with 220 grit and worked up to 1000 grit. I know, overkill. It will get scratched the first time I use it. At least I have these pictures to show me what it looked like once. I was surprised how out of square it was from the belt sander table. It is now square and smooth.

I then taped the plane and added two coats of Tung oil to the rose wood infill.

I cut a cardboard template to fit as the wedge and then cut the wedge out of rosewood left over from the infill. I barely had enough. The rosewood came with the kit.

Here is the plane finished.

I will now sharpen the blade tomorrow and give it try. I also think I will make a nice box to house the plane.

Thanks for following my plane making journey.
