    No, not yet. I'm trying to figure out a good way of doing that. I want to have the ends of the reeds follow the curve of the front and back of the plane, too.

      Finished!

      I went ahead and extended the points at the end of the reeding to follow the line of the escutcheon and the ends of the plane. The effect isn't all the noticeable at the ends of the plane, but makes a noticeable difference next to the escutcheon. I used my chip carving knife and some patience; wasn't hard.

      After that, it was finished with two coats of polymerized tung oil followed by paste wax.

      Here's the pics:

        Hi Mark,

        Beautiful plane! The racing stripes look much better extended, and you did a good job with the knife.

        Do you have a picture of the sole? Is the purpose of the box only to control wear, or does it have another function too?

        I like the dual-angle function you incorporated into the design.

        If you have a hard time getting things perfectly level, maybe you need a First Guess Gravity Gauge.

          Thanks, Chris!

          The bottom of the box is effectively the sole of the plane. The V-shaped notch in the bottom of the body acts only as a fence. The size of the resulting chamfer is determined by how far the box intrudes on the top of the V.

          It's actually a quad-angle capability :-)

            Here's some pictures of the bottom of the plane to illuminate my comment above.

            The box is set about halfway through its travel, which would result in a chamfer around 1/4". From the front:

            And so you can the whole thing (front of the plane is to the right):

              Your plane turned out fantastic Mark. Great job and thanks for taking the time for the detailed build thread.
              Have you tried using it yet?

                Thank you, I'm very happy with it. Have done a few test chamfers with it, but not used it on a project yet.
