Making and Using Tools - Planes, Scrapers, and Shaves

  I call this the “Jimi-Jack” by Adrian Britt 2 of 3  

I’m mostly finished with the throat and bed. Most of the float work is finished.
I've inlet the strike button mortise. It will need to be deeper; more on that later.
Also, the Razee is cut out and marked for the handle.

Rear view with a better look at the Razee and the handle.

The handle will be inset with a sliding dovetail.
Once fitted, it will be glued in place.

The body is 12” long and 2-1/2” wide. The plane will utilize a 2” uncut iron.
The iron will be 3/16” thick 01 tool steel.

The piece of Katalox adjacent to the plane will be for the other parts.
Once the handle fit is completed, it will be shaped. I really like the handle
on my L-N 62 so I used it as a rough template.

I used my L-N violin plane to cut the chamfers and chased them with a blunt chisel. The eyes were cut with a gouge and finished with the blunt chisel.

The whole plane was treated to a coat of Alfie Shine. Next to buff and polish.
