    Finished my jack plane and used laminated red oak to make the front and back blocks. Wood was bought at the Home Depot “hobby wood” display.

    And look at those fluffy shavings! These planes have really be great, Dave.

    Was the blade from Hock or LV or Lie-Nielsen? I see a space between the wedge and the blade – is there a cap iron or some kind of blade stiffener?

    Nice! The shape reminds my of a 1920’s wooded speedboat.

    Matt, the blades are hock blades and have a chip breaker on them for added rigidity at the cutting edge. They work great and are much less expensive than buying a metal plane, plus it’s just fun making these.

    Looking good Dave. They are fun to make, and more fun to use.

    Looks great. More details please! And some more photos if possible. I like the idea of laminating the wood, seems like it might help with the dimensional stability thing, what with the difficulty getting quatersawn wood round these parts.
