Kernov style block plane- curly American black walnut veneer outer with sapele core which came from an offcut from my mother-in-law’s kitchen worktop and an ebony base. The wedge is beech spalting.

The wedge didn’t hold the blade securely so I added a brass thumbscrew to hold it.

Perhaps the finest looking Krenov style plane I have seen. How does it work since the thumbscrew?

Love this style of plane. Good idea on the thumbscrew.

It works very well with the thumbscrew and holds the blade securely.
Thanks for your comment.
