This little block plane was built using the Krenov method. The body is maple with a padauk sole. The cross pin is also padauk and the wedge is maple. The iron and chip breaker set are from Hock Tools. The adjustment mallet is made with a brass tee fitting and oak handle and faces.

Very well done! Mr. Krenov avoided sharp angles on all the edges and would hand carve the shape to feel right inn his hand.

Great looking plane and I adore the adjustment hammer. This renews my motivation to make one for myself.

If it cuts as well as it looks you have something. Nice workmanship
