A few months ago I posted a picture on here of a Greene and Greene inspired hand plane that I designed and built. I decided to go ahead and build a set and finished a few weeks ago but am just getting around to posting on here. The planes all work great and have been fitted with Hock blades. The smoother (the middle one) is my favorite for use but I love the look of the big jointer plane.

I hope you enjoy them.

Those things are great man. I love the design. Build your handplane and greene and greene, I would have sat there for a week figuring out which to build first

I have to say that I can really appreciate the skill that it took to make those. I’m not a big fan of that style – personally – but you have done it well.

I love it when I find work that is outside the box. these HRW designed planes fit that category. Great idea and it takes homemeade palnes a real step up in glamour

They look great and well made but too good to use.
I would keep them on a shelf in the house to be admired.
