Mini Krenov hand plane
in respect for the master.
Just became so full of smiles when I finished this little fellow today, that I could not help share him with you.
Most of you are familiar with James Krenov , his wonderful planes, woodworking and the plane making technique he refined and made into a trade mark, that will pass down in history.
I am working on a handful of mini planes and like to give them different styles, this one became in honor of James Krenov, respect!
1. Palm size Krenov plane.
2. Luthier, Krenov and mini kanna jointer.
3. Less is enough… 4 – 8,4 – 12,5 cm
4. Size does matter, small can be really good.
5. Finish a wee rough in the spirit of Krenov.
6. Nice tight mouth.
The blade on this one are from a old French lot of blades I bought some years back.
Hand forged, from Peugeot, and had already been changed from a bench plane iron into a narrow width iron.
Yes you read it right, the French car company.
More info on types:
Later I will share a blog on the build of a bunch of little planes.
Perhaps this can inspire others to make planes in all sizes, it is great fun.
