  1. planes, planes, and more planes

    He last few weeks I've been on sort of a plane rush. It started with moulding planes and has moved extensively to rabbet planes. I have a no.6 hollow and round, a no.16 round, and 4 or 5 rabbet planes. So far all of my planes use blades hacksawed out of old table saw blades. They work quite...
  2. Broken Molding Plane into key holder

    Before you all start collecting scrap so you can roast me alive for desecrating a beautiful tool, the molding plane pictured here was split and has warped at the split beyond repair. It was/is a 1860s-ish Gleave #8 round. There was no bringing it back from the dead, so I cleaned it up, applied...
  3. moving fillister plane

    I made this plane from some beautiful quarter sawn cherry with bubinga accents. It works like a champ and I have maybe $50 invested in it. Sure is a lot cheaper then a decent vintage one. Check out my blog to see how I made it, the build process is a bit long to describe here ;). The blade is a...

  5. Pair of moulding planes

    Here's a pair of hollows and rounds I made. The body's are laminated in the same way that I made my moving fillister in. 3/8 radius on the planes. Blades are made from Lie-Nielsen tapered iron blanks, and the stock is made from quartersawn cherry. Last pic is the first moulding I made from them...
  6. Moulding Planes

    I watched Tod Herrli's video on making moulding planes, and thought I would give it a shot. I didn't want it to look like any old plane so I did some searching. I found this web site (http://thomasguild.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-medieval-toolchest-plane-part-5.html) an tried as best as a could to...
  7. 20" Jointer Plane

    Hello. This is my latest hand plane. Its a 20" jointer made with maple and walnut wedge and 2" blade. I designed the body with an exagerated "hook" on the front so if I do any face planing I have a good place to push with my hand. The plane body is finished with a few coats of danish oil and a...

    The Journey Begins stefang offered a challenge the other day for us to create a blog on hand tool use. That was good timing, because it's been on my mind for some time now. This will be a series in several parts-I don't yet know how many. If you are lucky, I will have the sense to know when to...

    Hollow and Round Moulding Plane Build After the frustration of eBay, Etsy and tool dealers, I decided to experiment with making my own hollow and round moulding (OK, I'm American but I like the Brit spelling better) planes.
