Successfully ruined a good plane because I'm a weeb...
I made this wooden plane a while ago and I mainly use to just rough things out (like a fore plane) before switch to my nice plane. I had made it with a very short "nose" because I didn't want my hand to accidentally knock out the wedge when using it. I was looking at it yesterday and then thought to myself "Hey what if I just drill another hole in it, then I could have both a European style plane and a Japanese style plane!" I didn't really think it through long enough because I forgot that the shavings have to go somewhere and now I have to clean it out like every three passes... I also drilled the hole it the wrong spot so I need a second wedge. But technically it now works both ways! The idea was solid but my execution was way off, I'm sure that I can find a way to make this work if I really think about but I should just make separate plane instead.
It's not bad to dream. But you also have to consider what's realistic. -All Might (Boku no Hero Academia)
