A wooden jointer / trying plane that is comprised of three parts.
a- The plane has a rectangular shaped body with a wood strike button on the top near the toe and a curved wooden handle that sits near the centre of the plane.
b - The iron for the plane.
c - The wooden wedge.


Jointer or trying planes (anything over 20”) were used for making large surfaces like table tops and floor boards straight. A medium grade plane, this one has no visible maker’s marks. Although the signs that it was used heavy for a long time may have hidden the marks under layers of dents from mallets. The thickness of the sole however suggests that it is not a high end plane as it is just 2” thick.
