But seriously, that already looks like it's going to be a stunning plane.
If the tail is being done in metal I am curious how you make it comfy. The cast iron plane tails are wide and rounded on the top to fit nicely in the palm.
I am getting my Xmas nuts and punch ready and watch ;-)

Unfortunately, Amazon have run out of the real magic dust,plus being an atheist thereís issues with believing.
I am slightly concerned that I donít end up making a Xmas ornament, I donít think I could ever recover from that.
The squirrel tail, the plan at this stage is to obtain a huge piece of brass, and use one of those violent little Bastard tools called a angle grinders to remove most of the waste, before a more gentlemanly approach with files.
But thatís just a thought at this stage.

A tiny amount of progress and a slight design change that has been approved by the Governor,plus a working drawing.
The soul as been roughly cut out,but i wasnít happy with the side profile it looked a bit too bumpy lol.
So a bit of a re design was in order.
also have my Tenons worked out with even spacing,which is important,because when the plan is sitting on a flat surface,know one will give a Rats bottom.

Yes I thought the table cloth was an improvement. I think you should steam and laminate the tail.I am learning, slowley.

Some progress today,quite a pace for me, but nothing like Mr Ian W who just seems to make a plane every hour or so.
Sides ruffle cut out,Ive deliberate left quite a bit of metal on the bottom of the sides,but more about that later.

In the pix the sole looks fairly hefty, which I like as it is not a criticism. I hope it's not a compensation thing...
