Nicely done. What types of wood did you use?

Wow, is it my imagination or did you bookmatch the core? Looks wonderful! I am most curious what the cheeks are made off. What is that green glow?

If that baby smooths as well as it looks you need to open a store. Nice looking plane.

Thank you! Not your imagination, I did bookmatch the Black Limba. The green was my grass, figured a picture of it looked better there then on my bench

Thank you, it does exceptionally well as it has a PM-VII blade in it. Wait till you see my #5 East-West fusion design I’ll be posting soon.

That’s gorgeous. I’m not typically a fan of wooden planes because I’m to lazy to adjust them with a hammer. But I spy an Norris adjuster on this beautiful plane. Definitely something I would be proud to own and use. Very nice job.

Thank you! You spotted correct, got the Norris adjuster from Lee Valley.
