    The Carpenter & Joiner looks to have a beechwood trying plane, which he probably made himself.
    Though partially hidden, it has a fair amount of width to it. And looks polished up a bit!
    It could be used e.g., to prepare 20 feet lengths of rough sawn material, to make 2’6″ x 6’6″ door frames.
    Sometimes on the top, near the front of the plane, a hole would be bored and filled with lead. The added weight assisting the application of pressure.
    And just ahead of the cutting of the shaving, where the wood (of the plane) is inclined to take most of the wear, a harder wearing wood was sometimes inserted. Especially after the plane had received a fair amount of wear. Commence work!
