Exotic Handplane Material Question
As you guys all know, I am privy to some pretty interesting exotic materials, and with machinists skills and access to a machine shop, I can build pretty much anything. Time is another factor, but one such material I have at my disposal right now is some Carbon Fiber. It's pretty thick and of a sizable amount. I have been machining it all week and now I am wondering if you could mill a plane out of the material? I guess the question is, are the properties right for a hand plane?
About the only thing I know about it is that it is super light, strong and makes you itch like crazy when you mill it.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
