Hey guys. Just fooling around tonight with my new drawing tablet. (FIRST PICTURE) I drew a proportioned handle template for a hand plane (Stanley). It is not to scale though. You can scale it, print it out, and see what size works best for you. I made these templates for people who want to make their own handle for their hand planes; or a handle for a push-block. I have the JPEG file on my computer, so if you don’t know how to save the pic (to your computer) from here, message me and I’ll send you the JPEG file through email. Also made a few more templates for Push-Blocks. All my designs – Feel free to use as you wish! (but if you make one – post it so i can see how it looks in real life!! haha)

Its always nice to take advantage of someone else’s artistic ability when you have none of your own. Thanks, I’m always making up push blocks in the shop. I like the one of the head, I think that will be one of my favorites. Once again thanks for offering up your artistic ability for some of us less talented.
