krenov type plane

Krenov style wooden plane with 1 ½ inch wide A2 steel Hock blade, Red Gum body with Spotted Gum wedge and insert.  
L  21cm W 5cm  H  6cm  untreated (apart from a little wax on the sole) 
This is my first attempt at making a wood hand plane and with the enthusiasm of James Krenov's book A Cabinetmaker's Notebook and guidance of Making and Mastering Wood Hand Planes by David Finck will not be the last.  I built the plane body from a log destined for the fireplace on my parents farm. Now it is generating a different kind of warmth.

This plane has been used to shape the tray edges of Ruination & Post
