Small router plane tutorialanother of my tool making journeys I have a Stanley and a Record router plane, but sometimes it would be wonderful with a small router plane, I have been looking at the Veritas small router plane, but thought it could be fun to make my own, so when I purchased some stuff from Lee Valley I also ordered a 9,5 dollar Veritas blade for their small router. This little blade has then been resting in my plane cabinet until I had the right idea for a design, at first I j...
My tool kit has longed for a router plane for some time. Why? • Because my dados need their bottoms flattened to a consistent depth.• Because my rabbets need to be trued—and to the same depth.• Because my tenons need to be trued too.• Because I wanted to do these functions accurately by hand versus a power router.• Because my Stanley family was anxious to add a new brother to the mix. But where to find one?In the year I’ve been combing estate and garage sales I̵...
If I ever succeed in making a usable rounding plane, it will be a tool to be used with a tool to make a tool.The rounding plane makes a dowel, which is used with a wood die to shape a thread in order to make a clamp such as these http://lumberjocks.com/projects/49549 Then it got convoluted when I realized that I needed yet another tool to be able to recess the blade into the blade holder somewhat accurately.As I do not own a router plane and as I did not wish to use my electric router, my ...
Both of these tools are very optional for the build…in fact I hope you don’t need these. I really do. I would love it if all your tenons come out perfect and that all of your planed surfaces come out gleaming and wonderful. If not… Card Scrapers will remove tear-out from even the most persnickety woods. They are cheap tools (you can even use a sacrificed saw blade…I have, and they work fine if you pick one without pitting near the cutting edge) but if you gra...

In the process of makeing a router plane. Check it out on my blog at the Red Dirt Wood Shop.
I won a bid on eBay for a Stanley 71 for $19.02 plus shipping. I was very pleased for the chance to own such a fine plane. Here is the picture that was posted on eBay. And here is a bit of a break down when I received it. After break down. Sorry no pictures of the process. I wiped everything down with acetone and a wire brush. I took my roto tool and got the rust out of all the nooks and cracks. The original finish was only 60 percent there. I am wanting a good clean user th...
Last part of the router plane series over at the Red Dirt Wood Shop. Assembly video and some video of the plane coming to life.
Ever since I saw Mafe's router plane I’ve had the desire to make one. As I do most often I look here on LJs for inspiration. Well, I found it. As I searched I came across this gem of a router plane made by Tinnocker. Tinnocker got his inspiration from Mafe’s design as well. I used a picture of Tinnockers design to come up with my version of a router plane. The body of the plane is hard maple. The handles are from some old chair spindles I had laying around, The plane iron is a ...
The following is excerpted from my blog, The Renaissance Woodworker. I hope you enjoy it. We had less than perfect weather this year in Maine and while it made for bad kayaking and sun bathing, it was great for a pilgrimage to Warren, ME. Just up the road from the world famous Moody's diner you see that telltale red roof come into view. When you first step through the door into the showroom, you cannot help but take a deep breath and sigh. It is a beautiful showroom done in all h...
