Default Next "Damascus" Plane stage.

The first one was that little guy that hurt my hand to use. I thought if I made it larger to get a better grip it would be better. But not so, still was a pretty plane but not so pretty to use, Then I fixed it on the 3rd try.
Pic 1. is the first one you have already seen. The last picture is a reject block plane I threw in to fill out the upload.

Extreme shapes do no not necessarily fit the hand. Beautiful sculpture though.

Did the handsaw type handle solve the problem and do you use it one handed or two handed? I meant to ask earlier where you get the pin from that holds the wedge and blade in.

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.

Yes the handsaw handle works very well,I still have to use 2 hands, Chuck, It feels real good and doesn't require much downward pressure with the handle tilted forward. I buy the brass rod from McMaster Carr in 2' or 3' lengths.
I went out in the shop today and the planes were sitting there in the sunshine, so I had to take pictures of the grain shining out.

Herb, If you don't mind my asking...Why is the block plane a rejected plane? It looks proportional in shape, is it bevel up or down?

Now I like that little fellow....You're having too much fun Herb!!

I'll tell ya what... ****don't hold your breath on this, just sayin****

I have a huge old anvil that I'm trying to work a deal on with a black smithing group. The deal I'm tryng to make is trade the anvil for 400 and hands on training at their site to make several Damascus steel blanks. A couple of knife blanks and several plane iron blanks. If the deal comes thru, I'll gladly send ya an iron for the small plane...
Now like I said, don't hold your breath, but maybe keep a finger or two crossed

Beautiful planes regardless of use. More like artwork then tools. So it appears there's another USA plane maker to compete with Lie-Nielsen......
