Mafe posted his blog on building his mini router plane and I have been waiting for the right wood to make one for myself. Yesterday (garbage day) I took a run around the hood in my van and spotted an oak trestle table. The top was laminated and worthless, but the legs and base were solid oak the knobs were from a wooden futon someone had thrown away a while ago, they looked useful so I saved them. the blade I made from a 3/8 allen wrench. I have to go out to my shed and try to find more of my old allen wrenches to make different size blades now.
Thank you Mafe for the inspiration you gave me to build this. Next I’m going to tackle the hand planes you have done tutorials on. keep up the wonderful ides buddy!
