New Hand Plane
Still smelling like resin, I just finished this hand plane for the Goozer. This one was constructed just like the previous ones. Made of pine with a single coat of polyester resin. There are a couple new modifications from the previous hand planes. I have added a small piece of neoprene to the nylon strap and beveled the back edge of the diamond tail for added comfort on your hand and forearm. This is the design I rode all winter. With the narrow point of the diamond tail it seems to work well in the barrel and its overall size (15"x7.5") makes it an easy entry into waves.
