Final Steps

The final steps for the plane are cutting the throat, fine tuning the iron, and making the wedge.
In this photo you can see the float in use to finalize the throat. The throat was carefully cut with a chisel. 

Shown here are the template plane wedge (top) and the wedge blank for the new plane. 

This is the wedge's finial. 

Here you see the finished plane.
