Plane update

As you can see, I’ve started carving/shaping the plates for archtop #5.
I’ve been using the two new planes that I showed you a couple of posts back. The flat length, curved width one does, indeed, work incredibly well for removing wood around the outside edges.
And the curved length, flat width also functions as intended, although I have to admit that I did reshape the sole by increasing the curve.
Had I bought the planes, I’d have thought it money well spent, but how immensely satisfying to use a tool that you’ve made yourself!
