Beautiful, functional work of art. Appreciate you sharing.
If you continue to cut corners, you'll end up going in circles!

It's my thumb so I'll hit it if I want to!

So how much does that plane weigh? I can’t imagine it’s very light…

It's heavy... especially in the toe.  I love that in a plane.  Others differ.

I don't count hours.  That would be depressing.  Lots of machining time, but the killer is getting sole flat.

I use a double iron jack plane that I made in 1978. Since I use it for long periods, I am glad it only weighs 2 lb. 12 oz. (1247 grams). I would not have a use for a heavy stainless steel plane.

I love the clean lines. This is one of your better lookers, and that is saying a lot. Great work.
Best,

I like it like all of your planes.

Why do you change the design with each plane? At least it looks like that.

What fun would there be to make the same design over and over?
Wood is good.

I make them one at a time, which leads to tinkering.  There are a couple of my planes, that I try to have in stock unchanged.  But, only a couple.
