These always look so neat, I just had to try and make one. I also had made a shooting board to square up end grain and needed a plane that would work on it.

Aye, John, it was some scrap cherry leftover from the huntboard project. I will probably be replacing the sole in about a year…..Rich

Very nice Krenov-like hand plane! I like your rationale for building this plane: “I built a shooting board so I needed a plane that would work on it.” I am going to build an outfeed table and buy a large drum sander to go with it :)

A wonderful piece of workmanship in making this block plane. A video of this project would have been helpful for many who intend to make a similar plane. Please let us know how you have made a shooting board.Sharad

good job! For those of you who haven’t made your own planes, check out www.hocktools.com. They have plans, kits and great blades.

Awesone jobWhat blade did you use – I was thinking of making up a couple of planes but rather than buying new blades re-using older ones

Hey Pat, I used a blade from an old Stanley block plane I had. You can buy new blades at Woodcraft stores or online if you don’t want to.
