I finished forming the wedge for the bronze miter plane tonight.
I want to sit on the design for a day or so, as I’m still not sure about the proportions – the strike bulb at the top feels a bit large, but it helps make it easy to remove the wedge. And because the infills on these planes aew completely internal, the wedge is the only wood feature that extends beyond the lip of the plane; so a somewhat inflated bulb can be a nice design feature.
In the end, though, I’m leaning toward reducing the profile a bit. It just feels little top-heavy to me. I’ll see how I feel about it tomorrow.
I am really pleased with the repeat cupid’s bow treatment on the bridge and wedge, though. That’s staying as it is…
