This hand plane has participated in over 1000 linear feet of rough sawn lumber in my woodshop. Not an expensive plane in this case but over 20 hours was spent sanding the machine marks from the sole and frog opening.. filing the mouth to almost exact tolerances.. etc. etc. I have been designing and building large carcass furniture pieces since I got home from Vietnam in 1969..

A very good image, composition could be improved by angling the one board moving the changing the angle of the plane and moving a few shaving to the upper quadrant of the image.

From a photogenic pov.. I agree Spirit but this shot is au natural. I stopped the plane in the middle of a pass and got my camera and shot. Angling the plane is called skewing. The more you angle the lighter the cut. Shavings are normally never before the
