Following up on my recent post about the Gerd Fritsche A31 plane he sent me this picture of a model with a none adjustable mouth with a very attractive amboyna burr infill. Not only do I prefer this model but I think the shorter front bun looks more attractive (it's cheaper too!). I have one on order with a rosewood infill and I'm looking forward to it's arrival. Check out Gerd's planes herehttp://traditional-handplanes.com/
Ioan from the UK sent me these pictures of a couple of traditional planes he made using oak beech and sycamore. The one above was made completely with hand tools and is very well done.
They are quite light in weight but good for his travelling tool box and they seem to work well too.
