  1. Ipe and Maple Smoothing Plane #2 with Norris (slow) Adjuster

    This is the second maple and ipe plane that I built recently. This one is a little different in terms of the adjuster. It has a "slow" Norris type adjuster, which is kind of what it sounds like. It takes greater movement of the adjuster knob to change the depth of the blade. Maybe a quarter turn...
  2. Ash/Oak Try plane

    Try plane I recently finished made from Ash. The cheeks, wedge, and dowel are all oak. I used a Ron Hock Iron/Chipbreaker set. Total time for the build was roughly 5 hours, including around an hour honing and flattening the iron. Overall the plane is 19 inches long, 2 7/8 inches wide and 2 1/4"...
  3. 24" Jointer Plane

    Big shops (50 guys) get big jobs (millions) which makes for lots & lots of off-cuts (big delicious). As an off hours hobbyist this is one of the very few good reasons to work in a large shop; that and creating monumental work as a team. Well, back when the city of Toronto amalgamated the...
  4. Japanese style shooting plane (dai-kanna)

    the idea of making a japanese plane hitted my mind long time ago. After having carefully learned how japanese steel is obtained (either white and blue types) and what components it includes, I discovered that our old car suspensions, those made as a crossbow, contain almost the same components...
  5. Table Bases

    Ya gotta understand that at this point I was a one man band. So, I've got this great regular customer that needs 50 turnings, in five days. He has a BIG shop and is willing to furnish material, glue up (COM & PREP=customers own material and preparation) AND they'll deliver the blanks AND pick...
  6. weld repaired Bailey #5 hand plane is now one of my favorite planes to use

    i am not a plane collector, i value them for their utility. most of my planes are "off name" less desirable, more affordable brands that get the job done. that being said, a local who resells his flea market finds on craigslist listed this Bailey. i thought wow, a Bailey #5 that i can really...
  7. Zebrawood Tote & Knob Sets for Stanley No. 4

    I am in the process of restoring a bunch of old Stanley/Bailey planes, and many of them had broken or damaged totes/knobs. This was my first attempt at making my own tote/knob set. I chose Zebrawood, and I decided to make 2 knobs and 2 totes. Obviously, the knobs were turned on a lathe. The...
  8. Another Wood Plane restore

    This restore came from this pile which is shown with all the other weekend finds. I believe its walnut. All tha'ts been done is sanding, flatten the sole, and so many coats of BLO i've lost count. Of course the blade was in dire need of grinding and sharpening. A little evapo-rust time and some...
  9. First Krenov Block Plane

    I was at Woodcraft yesterday and after a bit of work on some old wood hand planes i couldn't help but buy a Hock iron and build my own. I used some American Elm (I know, it's somewhat soft but it's free!). It's a bevel down Krenov style that cuts great and I couldn't be happier with my first...
  10. wood plane with marquetry

    I took a marquetry course from Paul Schurch earlier this year and enjoyed it very much. Since then I have been doing a few projects including this plane. I am restoring a Moultin Bros plane and decided to add marquetry panels with a vine and leaves pattern.
  11. A wood plane restore - ahh the Beauty

    This is the plane that drew me to all of the others in this pile which is shown with all the other weekend finds. I have not identified what kind of wood its made out of yet. I don't believe it beech or maple. It is the longest of the wood bodied plane I have at 28". The blade was ground and...
  12. The boys first wood plane

    My 7 year old son had a school project to do and chose to make a wooden plane, which of course I'm stoked! He decided what he wanted it to look like, shape, style, and paint. I cut the pieces out and made a thru- mortise for the wings. On this project he learned how much sanding is required an...
  13. smoother wooden plane

    I kept seeing posts of wooden planes on various forums and decided to make one. I needed a smoother for my desk tops. I used walnut with cherry slices, wenge for the base and pin, bloodwood for the wedge. I'm now waiting for the Hock blade to show up. It's about 17" long with a 1 3/4" blade...
  14. Second Hand Plane

    I took a Hand Plane Class and didn't like the way the end product looked. So I instantly decided to try and make another one. This one is made of Alder and Purpleheart. I don't know if I would use Purpleheart again for the sole. I could not use my jointer to flatten the sole so I did it by hand...
  15. High angle smoothing plane

    I had an old block plane blade and some scrap maple laying around so I thought try my hand at making a high angle smoothing plane. Actually I really don't know what I am doing when it comes to making wooden planes but it seems to work good. Now I just have to figure what's the best finish to...
  16. Handmade plane

    Thought it would be cool to have my own wood plane that I made myself. This is a replica of an antique plane made by the New York Tool Co.
  17. Router Plane

    Been wanting a router plane for a long time finally made one. Bought the 1/4" blade on line then shaped the body similar to one from Stumpy nubs and I was going to put knob style handles but started playing with it without the handles and liked the feel of the walnut body So i decided I didn't...
  18. 1934 Stearman Biplane in Yellowheart

    I made 4 or 5 of these in 2010 and 2012. I thought the nicest looking one was the one made from Yellowheart. I gave that one away as a gift. I used to be able to buy Yellowheart in 3/4×4 boards from Rockler, but they discontinued carrying it. Over the last few years, I accumulated about 6 of...
  19. Ziricote & Baltic Birch Plywood Hand Plane

    Plane was made with Ziricote & Baltic Birch Plywood. The adjusting mechanism and blade are from Lee Valley. I built the plane as a test to see how stable it would be (less wood movement) using plywood for the core. Plane takes a nice shaving. Very happy with the end result.
  20. Wood plane that can be assembled many times

    Lowe's sells about 4 different small wood models designed for ages 5 and up to assemble using a hammer and some small nails. My grandson and I built the airplane last sunday…......he really likes putting the stickers on :) The nails were hard to drive, even for me…...because the wood was so dry...
