Mangeras Hand Plane

Second generation handplane.  The hardwood is mangeras, which looks alot like mahogany and the stringers are cedar.  It is a pretty dark wood with short strings of sap that are a nice golden color.  I started using hardwood as the previous hand strap anchors were pulling out of the softwoods.  This has more bottom curves and a nice deep channel.  The channel looks good but I'm not sure how much performance it adds if any!  They are super fun to make and absolutely fun to use!
