A while ago, I got inspired by Bricofleur (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/104379) to make a fluch cut plane. It’s made from a piece of birch that I took from the firewood pile. After roughshaping it, I decided to finish the surface with my new carving knife (hook knife) and I am really happy. It feels very smooth but gives an excellent grip. The blade is held by a rare-earth-magnet and a strip of aluminum. For sleeping mode, the blade can be flipped over. I saw this on an image by Veritas and instantly liked the idea.

How I never saw one of these before or tried to figure one out is beyond me. For glue lines between veneer pieces this will be extremely useful. Probably even when trimming dowels level with the surface. This is going on my list.

Great little plane that will be very handy and I too should make one soon and will be carving it like yours but using my small router and carbide ball mill that I use for texture carving for my boxes .

Nice little plane for all those special needs. Looks to have a good grip to it.

Very cute small tool, still I decided to buy one instead make it – I’m not so brave to try.

Thanks a lot for all your kind comments, fellow lumberjocks!

@Klaus: such a texture will be a very good alternative.

@Ivan: you make yourself smaller than you are in reality. I know that, because I saw your projects. Making such an easy plane would not be a problem at all for you.

Cool! I want to make one of these too! I really like the texture. I guess I’m going to have to retire my junky base-model stanley block plane and make one of these out of it. I have wanted one of these for removing glue for some time now…

Thanks a lot, Pete!

No need to sacrifice a working and useful blockplane. I got the new blade for under 10 € including postage. :)

Fine little plane.
Reminds me of a mouse, lovely personality.
I use mine all the time after gluing.
Best thoughts,

Thank you very much, Mads!
To me, the profile looked more like a snail, after I finished it. :)

Wonderful how it can bring images.

That’s true! I just had to watch from right to left and saw a whale. :)
