Finned Handplane

Haven't made one of these in a while so I thought I'd have another crack, this time with addition of a little fin to see if this makes much of a difference asides from looking a bit funky.

This particular plane is made from a combination of obeche wood and cedar. The obeche is a fairly hard wood to work with but I do like how smooth and clean it looks when sanded nicely. At any rate, needs a few more coats of oil and hopefully get a chance to have a play with it soon, along with the posh new fins I've just ordered!
