    A little more progress today. Throat almost finished (a checkout will be needed for the chip breaker screw). Chiselled, rasped, filed and scraped. Bed pretty true (50) and depth adjuster sawn and dressed to size (and left in the throat, hope I can remove it when I'm next working on it)

    I always love watching when a plane bed and throat is chiseled straight out of a blank. Something on my list to try as well one day.
    I think this reminds me a bit of the chamfer plane Stavros Gakos made in one of his amazing videos.

    Hi Matt and CK. Sorry for the orientation of the photo, I don't know why they do this. It would make more sense if the image was rotated 90 clockwise. Guilty as charged your honour. I am following Mr Garkos' video pretty closely, (this plane is a bit more complex than usual). Well spotted I must also confess to having a small man crush on him.

    No comment regarding man crushes.

    Cheers Matt.

    Thanks for fixing the photo. The glue join looks half decent too

    Hi Phil. If only you knew how badly technology and I get on...... but you did make me laugh because I was going to make the same joke about Matt's "fixing" of my photo.

    Thanks CK lets see Stavros do that!

    More got done today. Needing something for a wear plate on the bottom of the depth adjuster, I started hunting through my bits and bobs. Due to a previous life building period feature fences, I have a small collection of letterbox flaps.....made of brass. After much measuring, cutting, filing and trial fitting I have the brass fitted. Things feel like they are going slowly but I guess that's the reality of building something new (how quickly we forget). Photos below

    Speaking of forgetting, planing the end grain on either end of the depth stop was a lot of fun, really. My 4 1/2 seemed to find its sweet spot. Maybe it was the recent sharpen or refining the chip breaker/blade contact or judicious use of my "Paul Sellers oil rag in a can". Whatever it came together nicely and it's funny how tools can come into favour. Anyway here's where I'm up to.

    Could be time for a new bench hook, seeing as how it keeps appearing in my photos.

    Are you using an iPhone? If so hold the phone upright, the iPhones save the orientation in the EXIF data as a portrait if you use the phone the upside down in Landscape mode. To use in landscape, have the home button or charging port to the right

    Thanks DJ but I have a Samsung. Hi Matt I'm glad I'm keeping you on your toes. A little more work was done this morning, brass filings everywhere.
