Started to build a Krenov hand plane, following David Finck’s article from FWW, over Christmas. Finally got to finishing up the job this weekend. The cheeks are Purpleheart, laminated onto maple. 2” Hock blade from Lee Valley. A few coats of wax, and its taking razor thin shavings!!!

Excellent job on that plane, that’s something that’s been on my “to do” list for some time. Nicely done.

Reminds me of an old roadster. Sweet looking plane.

Looking good. I’m still working on my first one. I think Finck makes Krenov style planes ;)

Yes, 2” Hock plane from Lee Valley. And it is a Krenov plane, from David Finck’s plans…
