Hand plane I made for my nephew.  Sole is Osage Orange dovetailed into the body.  A light amber dye to pop the grain. First try and a dye job.  Of course used too much and had to sand it out. I have made 5 planes so far. All except this one in the Krenov style.  Comments welcome

I think that is an outstanding looking plane ! I like it.

Is this a display piece, or is it intended to be used ?

This plane will probably be a display. My nephew has not shown any interest in woodworking, but he is still young.  It is a working model ready to be used.  I am sorry I do not know what kind of wood the body of the plane is, I purchased it a long time ago.  It's wavey grain caught my eye but the color is un-remarkable without the amber dye.  Thanks for your interest.

I have to agree with Breck... that is an outstanding piece and it should become a family heirloom... but, it should also be loved and used!

Nice work! Care to adopt another nephew???

Looks great, was it a retail type of kit or plan, or did you just come up with it yourself. I was wondering where you got the hardware for it. Thanks for sharing

The iron and chip breaker are #2 stanley replacement parts ordered from Highland Woodworking.  The lever cap was ordered as a replacement part from Lie-Nelson, also a #2.  Lie-Nelson does not put their name on the lever cap so  it worked for me.  The design all came out of my head.  I may have to make one for myself.

Thanks Steve, it looks like a great project. I might have to try something like that myself with an old cheapo plane I have laying around.
In looking up some parts I did come across this, which looks like it could be a neat project.
