Japanese inspired mini hand plane
I have a good friend Flemming, he keeps bringing me little tool presents, so I decided it was time to make him a small token of appreciation.
Flemming is an artist and like me he has a soft spot for tools, but as I knew he had no Japanese planes, I thought it would be a good place to go.
The blade is a old French plane iron I cut to length.
The body ash.
Krenov method but with the blade placed in the back end as a Japanese kanna.
It makes some really fine shaves and Flemming seemed to be happy for this little token of our friendship.
1. The plane with some shaves.
2. On top of Japan…
3. Size does matter.
5. Blade and wedge.
6. The plane.
Here a few of the gifts from Flemming that I can use some help to figure out.
Look at that wonderful burnisher.
(the wine was from my neighbor).
First there were this little brass plate, I was thinking it could be to put on the square, but it’s only a guess.
And then this? Any ideas?
Hope this can inspire others to make their own tools.
