I haven’t been on here forever. I have been working for a company and decided that I wouldn’t post anything I made for them. It’s their product. But recently I’ve been making some knives and decided to make a few hand planes. This is the first one and I am in the process of making the 2nd one. This plane is a wood plane made with maple, walnut, bubinga, teak, and ziricote. The lever cap is stainless steel, the lever cap screw is stainless steel with a walnut insert, and the blade is 01 tool steel that I heat treated and tempered. As always any criticism, positive or negative, is welcome.

What they all said – gorgeous plane. Plus it looks like it would be very comfortable to use.

You need to post more of your projects!!!

Beautiful work. Making projects with tools you made is just a different experience.

How is the tote to hold? I make mine much more rounded, but have actually never used a more squared off with rounded corners to know what they are like.
