  Building a Bronze, Dovetailed 7-inch Miter Plane by Bill Carter 1 of 12  

To build this plane I am using 3/16" bronze throughout.

As you may know, I came up with idea some time ago of exposed cupid bow detail on each dovetail.

For the first time ever I will try to get a row of these exposed cupid bows fairly close together, instead of a bigger distance between each one. To achieve this the pins have got to be much smaller than I would usually do.

I have set out the dovetails on a wooden template, as I always do with
the bronze in front ready for sawing in this position.

Once I have done the vertical saw cuts I no longer need the template,
but I will keep it for future reference.

Cutting out the rest of the waste.
