A Precisely Made Bed

I was never too keen on the thought of chiseling out a plane bed by hand, a three piece lamination with the bed, breast and wear angles cut with an incra gauge on a table saw just seemed much more practical. Though I am judicious with my use of electrons, the remainder of the plane will be built by hand.

The abutment angle will be 10 degrees, i've made up a wedge out of mdf to use as a template.

Miller dowels will aid with alignment when cutting the abutments and laminating the plane together.
