Did you make or buy the iron?

The main body is IPE. and the side inserts are Purple Heart. The IPE is a dense heavy wood that looks horrible before it is finished,then it is beautiful rich dark brown color.
The finish is spray can Lacquer.
The IPE gives the plane good heft, so it feels good and weight to hold it down.

The Purple heart was the end of a board that went from purple to tan, it looks kind of like a sunrise/sunset over a lake.
@gmercer_48083 I bought the plane irons from WoodCraft over the internet.

Really nice, Herb. As Tom mentioned, it looks vintage already.

The video was well done too. Makes one realize all the steps involved.

A true craftsman creating a piece that is not only spectacular in appearance but functions very well! Great job and thanks for sharing.

Thanks Herb. I've never heard or seen IPE but now it's on my radar.

If she performs half as nice as she looks, you've got a real keeper there Herb. Very nicely done!!!

It is not for everyone, though, some people have toxic reactions to the sawdust and the splinters are fierce. It does not plane well as chunks will come out even planing with the grain. Sanding and sawing and routing seem to be very easy.

I like working with it.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

This is very timely Herb. I've been keeping an eye out for a shoulder plane lately and the idea of making one as opposed to buying one is very attractive.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
