A big thank you and credits to Brian at GarageWoodworks. These chisel planes are a copy of his idea and work.
These are Christmas gifts for family fellow woodworkers. They are all oak, scraps from the cut table. The finish is BLO and pastewax. I left the frog and wedge unfinished to hopefully help the friction grip on the chisel. I may make the next one with a support on both sides just to help secure the chisel squarely. I didn’t finish or spend any extra time on the wedge because they really need to be tweaked to match the chisel used. That is the reason for the fourth photo.
I put a paring chisel in just to show how the wedge or top cut needs to be adjusted to accommodate other chisels. Like Brian stated in his pod cast, they are so easy and quick to make several widths can be made to suit your needs or chisels.
Using the planes was effective and easy. I did realize I need to do some sharpening!!!
Thanks again Brian.
