Plane and Simple

Last year I made a little Krenov style wooden plane.  I got a really nice hock blade for it (thicker 02 steel type).  I just love this plane.  It is now my favorite for shaping braces.  So simple and so incredibly awesome!  If you haven't made yourself a plane yet I suggest "no time like the present"!  I used some pretty mesquite (with really tight grain and lovely red colour) I had laying around and the wedge was made from some plane maple.  Nothing like turning some small scraps into a valuable and cherished tool!
