I’m still fairly new to hand planes, been about a year now. I got to wondering the other day as I used my Stanley 220 to round over the edge of a table top, are there planes out there for say round over, chamfer and such, I know about rabbit planes, just wondering if there are others?

Would you believe I found out about spoke shaves shortly after posting this. Now on to YouTube to learn how to use them….

If you’re curious, chamfer planes have been made in a wide variety of designs. The Japanese ones are particularly interesting imo.

Stanley made a chamfering plane, but they are somewhat rare and can be pricey. The reason they were rare i believe is because a skilled craftsman would just angle their plane. And moulding planes would do round overs and other shapes.

I just ordered a spokeshave as well. Can’t wait for it to arrive.

Check out the Wood and Shop youtube channel with Joshua Farnsworth. He does a very good episode on moulding planes.

For corners use a chisel plane or a stanley 90 shoulder plane where the front piece comes off. Or if you find a 78 that’s been modified the front has been cut off

If you can think of it, there is probably a plane made for it. some tend to be a bit gimmicky but others not. Bull nose planes for inside corners, chamfer planes for outside. Hollow and rounds.

Like already mentioned, look at molding planes. Find some old catalogs and look through all the different profiles.
