I bought a board of 3/4 beech. I chopped four pieces of it and glued it up. I've been wanting to make one of these for a while now. My dad is helping me with parts as I am still not allowed to use the tablesaw. This is going to take a while because of school and other priorities. Im going to bed the iron at 50 degrees. Its going to be my hybrid of a coffin smoother and a krenov style plane. I hope to get to actually shaping of it soon.

It sounds like you have a good idea what you want and good references so I'm sure you will do well. Welcome to LJs

"My dad is helping me with parts as I am still not allowed to use the tablesaw."

I remember those days very well, the sad part is that while I was living it, the days seemed to drag on, but now it seems like that was just yesterday. I look forward to updates on your project.

Welcome to Lumberjocks!
Im with the same plans, I already ordered a 1 3/4" Iron with chipbreaker and the Krenov Plane Plans from Hock Tools , but I want to make it the old way, that is making the iron housing in a solid block of wood, with lateral abutments for the wedge.

Ditto what Brianinpa said -
Treasure these days.
And it is great to see a youngster appreciating working closely with the wood.
