Default Shoulder Plane

I finished up a shoulder plane for myself today. It is made from Yellow Heart and purple heart. The wedge is purple heart,although it looks like something else. The end of the board was a brownish color.
This one is the same size as the last one I made that disappeared,it has the larger handle tilted forward.
It took a little fooling around to get it tuned to cut good, finally after 4 wedges ,the last one I made longer, to stop it from chattering when it cut. It works good now.
