« Part 1: How to Handle a Moulding Plane Part 2 of Antique Wooden Planes and the Furniture Maker series no next part

Allan Fyfe of Lethenty Mill Furniture demonstrates how to use a smoothing plane that he has just restored. Another movie will follow on the restoration process. The restored plane came from a box of old tools that were in bad condition and it turned out to be a product of the Scioto Works of New York. He knows very little about this company, apart from already having two other smoothing planes and would be delighted to hear from anyone who has more information.

Thanks for the great video. I can’t wait to see the tune up video.

Hi Allan.

Excellent treatment of the wooden plane. I’m in the process of building one for my own use and learned quite a bit that will come in handy in setting it up. Thank you.
Is that a wee touch o’ heather I hear in that voice?
