Infill in process.

Sorry, nothing is finished, not the plane, not the blog, but I'm working on each as time permits.

Here's more pic's


I got lucky and found a chip breaker that’s perfect. I have a piece of steel for the cap, but I’m starting to think I need to order some brass.

One quick coat of brush oil.

That's really beautiful, and a great use of 'scrap'... maybe you should see if Layne from this thread has any ideas as to making a sufficiently pretty lever cap?

I'm only vaguely familiar with infills... is there a particular advantage to having the iron filled with wood or is it just an aesthetic?

Its both. The extra wood adds mass, so its heavier.


Edit, and if I wind up making the cap out of metal, I might just send it to Layne, that's a great idea. I think his work is fantastic.

A nice way to recycle some old and mis-match plane parts. I like it.

Looking good Don.

That's looking sweet, Dom! Brink and I have both been talking about building infills with iron planes as donors for some time but never got started. It will be interesting to see your progress! Good luck with the build!

Previously made this one

Not the prettiest thing, but it works well.

Certainly interesting looking, How much additional weight do you figure it added?

I'm not sure. I'll have to weight them.

Almost there!! (more pic's)

The base is a #4. Its from a cheap no name with a pressed frog.
Bedded at 55 degrees
Typical #4 iron.
African Rosewood fill
These pictures only have one coat of oil and as you can see, still some detail work to be completed.

Thanks for the update. I love the long wavy shaving of the previous post. Well done Don.

I presume the lever cap is held in place by the side screws?

Nice heavy looking lever cap.

Very nice Don, my favorite of the ones you've done so far! Really like the brass lever cap and knob.

Did you bend or hollow grind the chip breaker at all?

Why haven't you entered the marking gauge swap build???
