Project Information

Well I went by a new lumber place and they had a beautiful chunk of east indian rosewood. I couldn't help myself. So I snagged it up and took it to the shop. Since lately I've been addicted to hand planes what better way to use such a nice chunk of wood. So here it is. It's about 8" long, the bed is set at 45 degrees, and the pin is made from birdseye maple. Unfortunately I couldn't afford a really nice iron but this one seems to do the trick pretty well. It's a buck brothers 1 5/8" iron it's about an 1/8" thick. Maybe I can splurge next time and get a nice iron but for now this one will do.

Nice job on this plane. Don't be too hard on Buck Bro's, I've had pretty good success with my block plane and jack plane from them. Granted, both required a fair amount of tuning first, but they've served me well. But anyways, a beautiful plane, no matter what iron is in it. :)
