Slowly crawling out of my offline cave back to online life…

This here is my most recent project that I finished couple of days ago: wooden rabbet plane.

Beech, some little brass and steel. Finish is two coats of BLO.

200 mm / 8” long, 40 mm / 1-5/8” wide, cutting angle 55 deg.

Will see how it goes, but it’s been made as a tool to clean up / pare tenons for M&T joints. Initially I wanted to build an infill block rabbet plane, but then decided to give this wooden guy a try. So it turned out to be not too large, not too small, manageable by one hand tool.

Thank you for looking!

Andy, thank you very much, so good to hear from you! I did read some LJ threads from my “offline cave”, now will try to post there too.

Klaus, thank you, man! I do enjoy, and to be honest I’m a little afraid to put this one in use just because it looks kind of pretty to me :)

Wow, beautiful! If it works half as good as it looks, you’ll be set. Seriously fine work!

Thank you everyone!

The plane performs nicely, might still need some adjustments of mouth opening, but I’ll wait until I have more statistics with both soft and hard wood planing.

Glad to see you back Yuri! Nice plane with specific look. I could not comprehend the porpouse of some internal details but, having in mind your hitec bench vise, I am sure they must do some good things.

Privet, Sergey, good to hear from you too!

This little block with the hole is what called “cross pin” for Krenov-style planes:

The cross pin (well, in my case cross-bar I would say) rotates so it is self-adjusted to the wedge, as a result plane iron is secured pretty well. The advantage is that parts – wedge and cross-bar – do not have to perfectly fit to each other, so one can build them less accurate.

What are you building?

Ok, I got it, thanks! BTW it would be nice to see your garden bench mentioned in your other entry.
I built in summer several small items, but they are hardly worth to be published. I guess my next project will be an axe handle.

Here’s the bench:

It’s low-height bench to sit and relax on for two adults / three children. Not too fancy but sturdy and practical. Can be disassembled for storage or transportation.
