wooden mitre plane

At the recent European woodworking show I had quite a lot of interest in a wooden mitre plane that I had made for myself. The plane was based on early 19th century examples that I had seen. It is made of beech that was recycled from the rear portion of an old try plane. The plane is
approximately 12" long, and has a 2" iron.

 The whole plane was fumed with Nitric acid to give it a nice warm color. The iron is pitched at around 25 degrees
