To combine the Krenov plane building style with Japanese planes.3. To find use of a beautiful old hand forged Japanese plane iron that I had purchased some time back. Here an example of a Japanese jointer plane I saw on E-bay. On this link a seller in Germany, I think the price tag huts a wee bit: http://www.fi...
I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20.

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...
