    Yep, what happens on the inside, stays on the inside










    Pretty sure mine will have a few gaps on the inside too
    But once the stuffings go in, no one will ever know

    Well CK you didn't stuff it up . Comes up looking really good in the photos, and the outside is what you'll be looking at

    But I am going to stuff it. Preferably and hopefully with some nice handle and front ;-)

    All I managed to do was prepping a board for the tote. Hopefully I get more done the coming week.

    Cklett,

    Well at least that is done.
    One step forward is a lot more than none.

    Cheers Matt.

    Good to see some progress; no matter how small you might think it is. Whatís the timber?

    The timber is chinese elm. That tree had to be cut down on our land a couple of years back. I saved some parts just for fun. Cut to slabs and had them drying in my garage.

    I thought I will give it a try for this plane. Just for something different.

    Good stuff CK. Good to see any and all progress.
    I have been thinking about how I will make the handle for my plane, not sure of the hang angle I will use . Did you work yours out with any science, or just go with what looks or feels good ?

    More progress is always a good thing. What is the Chinese Elm like to work with?

    I just found some plans / drawings for infill panel plane. I took one of them as starting point and then adjusted slightlg to my design. In that case I did not change the hang angle. I glued the template to a cereal box and cut it out though and tried to get an idea if I like it. I might still tweak it a bit as I go.

    I guess you could also just copy the hang angle of a Stanley plane tote or use one of these templates to start. Templates for Bailey type plane totes are also easy to find.

    Not so hard to work with. I had some tear out at first. I fixed it by setting the chipbreaker correctly. I had it too far back at first. Seems to have a little bit of interlocking grain but not too much.
    I also read it is quite high in silica and blunts the plane iron quickly. And yes I had to sharpen in between.

    I find it has interesting color shades from nearly bright yellow to grey.

    I will know more when I have done the handle how it turns out to be.

    No worries mate. Will probably knock up a couple handles out some pine with different hang angles to see what feels good.

    Minimal progress is still better than none, right?



    Drilling the holes took some strength. Maybe I need to sharpen the auger bit a little better. However, the wood is also pretty hard. The holes came quite clean. Not that they stay like it anyway ;-)
