Here’s a pair of hollows and rounds I made. The body’s are laminated in the same way that I made my moving fillister in. 3/8 radius on the planes. Blades are made from Lie-Nielsen tapered iron blanks, and the stock is made from quartersawn cherry. Last pic is the first moulding I made from them. They cut amazingly even against the grain in pine. The pitch is either 50 or 55 degrees so they are designed for hardwoods.

These are really impressive. Great work, just like your saws.

Those look well-made, nice job. I always thought it would be tricky to sharpen a molding plane, never used one but I want to.

Very nice! I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making my own too.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Looking to tackle a plow plane next and then 1 more pair of hollows and rounds. They are so darn fun and actually pretty easy to use.

Have your say...
