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 10mm allen wrench. Finished with a couple coats of poly.
Here is how it turned out.
Here’s a video of how I made it, if you care to watch.
I really look forward to using this router plane on future project so stay tuned to see it make its debut.
I have created a SketchUp model of the plane and will make the plans available as soon as I get the kinks worked out. At this point the only way I have to get the plans to someone is via e-mail. I’ll post a blog when I get them done.
At any rate, thanks for taking the time to look at this project. Also, if you would, please subscribe to my YouTube channel. I’m going try to post projects on a regular basis.
