Plane was made with Ziricote & Baltic Birch Plywood. The adjusting mechanism and blade are from Lee Valley. I built the plane as a test to see how stable it would be (less wood movement) using plywood for the core. Plane takes a nice shaving. Very happy with the end result.

Great idea with the birch. Well done.

Nice looking plane. I noticed the grain in the Ziricote and while it’s beautiful, I wondered like you mentioned, about stability. Using BB ply is a clever way of keeping the beauty while taming the potential movement, and it looks great, too.
