As discussed before I am going to be working on a new model. It will be based on Ryan's interim handplane that he made. The first Prototype will be mainly to test the bottom contours. I will make one with the exact same outline as his previous custom, but will change the bottom contours to see how much a difference they will make. We also discussed some different water entry schemes. I am starting out with a typical width handplane, at least for me. I am hoping to be able to utilize what is learned and start making smaller. Sean Hayes and I have also shared similar ideas, but in a much smaller form. That will be next. If I decide to release this as a model, I am going to have to start tooling a little differently. Scooping out that much wood from the bottom is going to take some thought. Yea, I can do it, that isn't the problem. Problem is doing it in somewhat of a production sense. Here are some pics of Ryans interim board that we are basing this project off of.
