I saw a moulding plane in an antique store and decided to make one, for my first one I decided to just do a straight blade rabbet plane, the blade was cut from a circular saw blade, body and wedge are Cumaru

Nice plane, how does it cut? any vibrations from the blade? I’m thinking about making one myself so any tips would be gratefully received.

Very nice plane, looks good, how do you like it’s performance? Self made tools are a pleasure to use, very gratifying.

Cuts good I don’t think there is any vibration problems, I spent quite a bit of time fitting the wedge, blade, and body so it would be tight, adjustment is I think a lot easier than I thought it would be, just tap with a hammer in the right spot, fast and easy

Great job. I was lazy on bought one that looks like yours but probably doesn’t work any better.
