Specs:

Plane:
-2” Hock iron with chipbreaker
-about 9.5” long
-Bluegum (eucalyptus) body
-Ebony Sole
-3/8” brass cross pin with ebony “cross block”
-Hickory Wedge
-50 degree bed angle, with a 5 degree back bevel I ground into the iron. I wanted a high angle plane for figured stuff.
-It works!!

Hammer:
-5/8” brass round rod
-birch handle
-Bloodwood plug epoxy’d onto end for striking the wood of the plane

They’re both finished with oil wax.
I didn’t use plans. I wanted it (the plane0 to fit in my hand well, and it seems to so far.
All the parts are glued together with slow cure epoxy. (System three T88)
It was a fun build, and I learned a lot!!

Build photos below:


The wood had some checks and natural imperections, but the slow set epoxy really creeps in and makes a great end product…

I drew a pattern on paper and glued it on to aid cutting out the shapes

I had help

And more help

Tape to ease the clean up after gluing

Thanks for all the kind words!

Yes, it is a little harder to push than say my bevel up smoother you can see in the pictures. But not so bad. I expected as much with the higher angle.

Nice looking set, Pete! It’s nice to use a tool you made with your own hands, and I find I don’t worry as much about the little dings that tools inevitably get when it’s something I made.

Speaking of dings, I see some cute little ding maker, you need to be making them some toys and Tools to help out with in the shop. LOL

Ha! yes! You know, there’s a story about that. Go look in my projects. You’ll see lots of things, but amoungst them, a morris chair and a “pound-a-peg” toy. I had just completed my morris chair when the older ding maker in the pictures took the hammer from the pound-a-peg toy and added “character” to the arm of my morris chair. I didn’t expect it to stay nice long, but I did expect it to last longer than a day.

It’s ok, today you will have thoughts, what did I do to deserve this…. sometimes…......

A few years down the road they will call you Grandpa, then you can exact some payback by ruining their fine child, gifting them with loud musical instruments, and other noise makers. Fun stuff like that.

Most agree, if they knew how much fun grand kids could be, they would have had them first.
