Re: Skew Infill Shooting Plane - Finished - Almost

Thanks, brian. I sort of owed (term loosely used) you a skew shooting plane, but can't come up with a good way to lay out a wooden double iron plane without compromising the abutments or wood grain direction.

I think building one of these is enough for me, but if I ever get the itch to build another one, I'll let you know. Normal terms and all (cost of materials - there's about $200 in this one).

I don't think any of the pro builders will be offering any of these up at ten times that, though there are short-cutted versions for around there (brese has an all metal BCTW-ish looking thing, but no skew). I'm sure there is a market for a plane like this if Ron can sell his short square box for close to three grand. I'd probably serve it for the mid-life crisis buying crowd if I didn't have a day job, as I could make one of these in a 60 hour week. Brese finishes his planes perfectly, mine has evidence of hand work. I sort of like the life that's left by hand beveling, etc, instead of by machine. The almost-perfect look draws more interest, in my mind - it's more natural. The average market purchaser would not agree.
