I have had a strong desire to learn how to make wooden hand planes. After a few false attempts I went through a redesign and got things going.

Very nice we had a class on making these at our Mason Dixon Woodworkers club this year.

Very nice looking plane. Did you get this out of the Whelan book? You don’t see many people build the often overlooked shoulder plane. Think I am going to give it a crack. The plane looks stunning!

Thanks seandietrich,

I was inspired by a metal infill plane from Popular Woodworking several years ago, but I couldn’t find materials in the price range that interested me (cheap), so I turned to the materials that I had on hand. The old chisel blade came to mind when I tried to sharpen by hand and realized how hard the steel was.

I probably don’t have over $1.00 in the materials, but with all the design time I might have 3 – 4 hours total. It was a lot of fun, I learned a lot, and the next one won’t take as long to design and build.

Thanks again for looking, and commenting.

later,

Sound like a fun learing experience. I am sure you will put the plane to good use.
