Nice Try

Been working on cutting and shaping my paulownia wood into a fishy-handplane type deal. I'm not a very good shaper, but I feel like I have the outline where I want it, and the rails are getting close to being turned up and down in the right places. Even got a little flip in the nose. Trying to get some concave in the tail and get the two sections of the cut-out to be symmetrical, but overall, it's coming along and the flaws are becoming less noticeable to my eye. Should be ready once the water has warmed up.

If you saw it up close, you might not think so! Still, I'm having fun with it.
