The basic cuts
This should have been first…
I know this was how the blog should have started but I had not planned to take photos when I started so this is why – but since I decided to make some more planes I took pictures after.
So here it is ‘The basic cuts’.
As so often recycle is the basis – here a piece of Ash wood that comes from the cut out for a kitchen sink.
Its big wonderful staves that I simply cut out again by cutting in the glue line, and in this way get wood for plenty of tool handles and yes even hand planes.
Back in line.
This is where they are glued together in the length, it’s really strong, but for this project I stay away from these.
A block of wood, all free.
The iron on top.
Marking for the sizes.
The side – tang – side.
Remember to add the thickness of the saw blade, and that the tang part needs to be a little wider so you can adjust.
And marking up with a gauge to control the saw cut after.
Ok I’m lazy!
Side – tang – side.
That is all to it!
Now we are ready to go to part one of the blog….
I hope this blog can inspire others to build some of these planes.
