I found a nice chunk of red oak in my fire pile and decided to give it new life.
After many attempts at using a shooting board always resulted in a mess I realized my jack plane was not square from the base to the sides. I concluded that the solution to my problem was a Krenov style plane.
I struggled a bit because I landed up with a bump on the base but some sandpaper on my jointer sorted that out. I also cut the back a bit to round. Otherwise it is a great plane.
I used a 1 1/2″ blade.
After maching and all ready for the next phase.
