I remember seeing a magazine article awhile back detailing how to make 3 krenov style planes. I don’t think it was by D. Finck but I can’t remember. Any leads as to the magazine, issue or author? Many thanks in advance. Attached is a photo that I believe is from the article that i’m interested in.

It’s a little different, but maybe you were thinking of this

No idea about the article, but two related resources.

Woodsmith had a project in issue #47 (October, 1986). That’s right, Thirty-two years ago this month! I still have that issue.

David Marks had a wooden hand plane as a project in Season #6 of his Woodworks television series. I have a set of the instructions that I downloaded from DIYnet in 2005, but I cannot find them at the current DIYnet website. I don’t recall if I paid anything for the plans. David has a digital download of the program available for $4.99 on his website.

I made David’s plane just as he did out of purpleheart. The plane works really well. I purchased the plane iron and chip breaker set from an Internet source.

I have that issue and want to say it’s Wood Magazine but google is failing me.

Hawk tools I believe sells plans of several of the Krenov style planes.
