Hand plane DIY convex.
Or Mike meets Mads style…
This post comes from the Hand plane DIY convex blog.
Our dear Mike (Stefang), started a ‘master class here on LJ, a blog on how to make a traditional Nordic bucket, and part of this class was ‘making a convex hand plane’, so this was why I did it. Thank you Mike!
Also it was a dream for me, a dream to make my own hand plane, not that I needed one, but to prove to myself I could, and in the future be able to make special purpose planes when needed.
1. The plane.
2. Palm size.
3. First shavings, before, shaping the plane body .
4. The parts.
5. Half way.
6. The sole.
Press here for first part.
Hope this can be to some inspiration, first to take a look at the blog, and then perhaps to make some handplanes.
It was much easier than it seem, just takes some time.
