Hand plane DIY bloghand plane, scaper planes and toothing plane ramblings… My last blog on making handplanes was the one about the small planes , those little fellows bring plenty of smiles, both to me and guest in the shop.This time it was a need for a small scraper plane, the buy of a German toothing plane blade some time back and finally the reason I took off, was a old friend who wrote me, that she and her husband needed a small hand plane, that they can use when making arrows fo...

Venturing into Parts Unknown - Hand Tool/Plane Storage #2: Slow and steady progress

02-21-2017 08:09 PM by rhybeka | 6 comments »

Besides that this is my first foray into hand tools, I’d say it’s going fairly well. I decided to build a false front so the planes would rest at an angle. I changed the layout from the original a bit. I was leaning all of the planes in to take a picture, and the #4 decided to fall out. Luckily I was there to catch it, and there’s a couch directly beneath the till. This concerned me a bit though for obvious reasons. I’m planning on putting 3 rare earth magnets under th...

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #11: Final Fettling and Wrap-Up

12-15-2016 12:52 PM by HokieKen | 7 comments »

At long last, we have reached journey’s end :-) I apologize for taking so long to get this last entry done but life got in the way the past few weeks so I’ve been squeezing in working on this plane as I’m able. She’s complete and ready to go to work though! At the end of the last entry, we had flattened the sole and squared the sides up to it. I spent some time working up through some higher grades of abrasive. I’m not going to go into detail on that, just...

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #10: Flattening the Sole and the Sides

12-08-2016 01:01 PM by HokieKen | 4 comments »

We’re in the home stretch now! This part is usually one of the most time consuming depending on the plane. We need our plane to have a flat sole. How flat? Well, it’s really up to you. LumberJock unbob mills his first then hand-scrapes them flat. Mine won’t be that flat! I’m just gonna be doing what he calls “roll over the edges sanding that is called lapping in the woodworking world”. BTW, I’m not picking on unbob, he’s exactly right. But IMHO, “...

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #9: Putting it All Together

12-05-2016 04:31 PM by HokieKen | 4 comments »

Well we’ve finished most of our grunt work. All that’s left to do is finish up the base and get this guy ready to make some shavings! The next thing to do is to flatten the sole of the plane and to polish up the sides (maybe flatten them as well depending on what the planes going to be used for). We’ll handle that in a later entry but before we do that, we’re going to put this plane back together. Why do I reassemble it before working on the rest of the body? ...

Tools #2: Wood rabbet plane

11-21-2016 01:42 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 2 comments »

About nine months ago my dad gave me one of my great-grandfather’s planes, a wooden rabbet plane. When he gave it to me I sharpened the blade as best I could and gave it a try, but set it aside because I didn’t have a specific use for it. Over the last few nights I worked at cleaning it up a bit. The most notable problem was that it was very, very dirty, covered in coal dust. Just touching it to pick it up would cover my hands in black. I scrubbed it down with a few grades ...
