here is the final installment on the making of my krenov plane. I fought the wedge because of the iron change. I have it working now and it is a fine 2 inch wide smother. I wanted the width, she is a fat short plane and is working fine.Here is the making of the plane. Part 1Part 2Part 3I did enjoy this, I hope you did.
Here is the second part of my krenov build. I had to modify the plans a bit to fit a two inch iron. I placed a good edge on my old plane iron but it was to brittle. So I had to use a new style iron and chip breaker. I used a wine stain to give it a bit of depth. Then I sanded with 120 grit to seal the pores and used an oak gel stain. The last coat of color was walnut. It was sanded again and airbrushed with waxed shellac. I used about a 3/4 pound cut. Because of the iron change the wedge is a...
I am a type of guy that will get a notion to do something and just go with it. I found a plan online of a Krenov plane using Hock irons. I don’t have a hock Iron, I do have an old two inch smoother iron from Providence Tool Co. So I choose to modify the plans a bit to see if I could get the thing to work. I know the Krenov style is one of the easiest to build.This will be a two part series and I am at the glueup. First the materials. The base of the plane is good old Mississippi swee...
It seems I had nothing better to do tonight, because I ended up splitting a plane blank out of a piece of firewood and planing the four faces down. Partially it was to see if I could do it. Partially it was to try out a beater Stanley #5 I picked up a few weeks ago without having to go through the trouble of actually lapping, sharpening or otherwise tuning it properly. And partially I realized the turning blanks I picked up from the Rockler scrap bin are probably just a bit too small...

Hand plane DIY convex.Or Mike meets Mads style… SECOND PART.Press here for first part. To remind you, this is what we are after. A hand plane, ‘block plane’ size, made for a rounding of 22 cm (app. 4 inch).As you can see Krenov style, and a touch of Japan, at least this was my wish… Time to make the wedge.I wanted the same wood as the plane, and had an old floorboard, that could be used.Cleaned it up, and cut it to same size as the plane iron, so I have a little slip in the ...
Hand plane DIY convex.Or Mike meets Mads style… Our dear Mike (Stefang), started a ‘master class here on LJ, a blog on how to make a traditional Nordic bucket, and part of this class was ‘making a convex hand plane’, so this was why I did it. Thank you Mike!Also it was a dream for me, a dream to make my own hand plane, not that I needed one, but to prove to myself I could, and in the future be able to make special purpose planes when needed. Since I’m a bad...
While finishing consruction and maintenace projects preparing for Minnesota winter…. Snow didn’t melt last year, and it was piled everywhere, 6 to 7 ft. high….I have been on my Krenovian journey. I have the “cabinet maker” books, which inspired me. I didn’t know I had joined thoese before me. Just got the woodworker book. Know there are other books but…”enough”.. Yesterday the weather stopped me again. So off to find what’s out...
I wanted to try my hand at making hand planes, the shop needs several. Struggling with the design concept, I bought a book “Making Traditional Wooden Planes” by John M. Whelan, it was no novel but a good source of wood plane design info. It’s worth reading if you’re researching wooden hand planes. Trying to keep the first plane simple I decided on making a small shoulder plane in the Krenov style. Looking around my shop I found an old 1” chisel. It is harder than heck, so I took it a...
