Wooden hand plane advice

Post by Alice44 » Fri Aug 09, 2019 11:49 am

Hi, I am a DT GCSE student and I am thinking of making a wooden hand plane as a project,
I was wondering if you experienced woodworkers could give me a bit of advice on hand planes, their main uses and important characteristics.

Or to just answer these 4 quick questions

1. What would be your main uses of the hand plane.
2. What size would be best for that use.
3.What price range would you consider paying for such a plane.
4.what are the most important characteristics of quality hand planes

Any other thoughts much appreciated.
