    Hi Debra ran into a few problems,
    I made some mods to it, but the throat is too large where the blade sticks out of the sole,
    and the shavings are getting stuck in there, also I think the iron is too straight across the middle,
    the bevel is good, easy to sharpen Just have to get more accurate with the shape.
    Here are some pics.

    I had to cut the plane in three sections because when i first finished it the blade was too close the the toe of the plane. So I cut it into three sections, rearranged the pieces and then glued them together, when it dried I reshaped the plane completely, and it is closer to what it should be. I must have done something wrong when i made the piece for the throat ?
    I will keep at it.

    I reshaped the iron, much better, I also made the relief deeper, shavings still clog up a little but it is working more like a plane now than a scraper, going to heat the iron next.
    Need some oil, can motorcycle oil be used, how about a wood burning stove to heat the iron ?

    That is an insanely thick iron cutting iron–looks like maybe 1/4″?

    What if the throat were bigger? It might keep shavings from clogging up.
