For some years now I have been, well, 'obsessed' may be a strong word, but very curious about building an infill plane. It morphed from 'Can I do that?' to 'I want to do that' to 'I'm going to do that.' It has morphed from a casual eye out for old, well seasoned wood to finding a source for O1 tool steel to a frantic search for anyone who would sell me C220 bronze.
Now that I have the materials that I need, the work can begin. It's not going to happen overnight, though. I have set a goal of 2 years to finish this thing. There will be lots of other projects during that time as well, I hope, maybe even a couple of wooden planes. There are a lot of things I have to learn before I can finish this, but there are no more excuses.
