This chisel plane is inspired by two others I saw on Lumberjocks:
Scott
GarageWoodworks

I made mine from scrap cherry, black walnut, and padauk. I’m using a 1” socket chisel. I used a socket chisel so I can take off the handle if it gets in the way. I left the bandsaw marks on the top of the wedge which helps to lock in the blade.

The finish is just wax.

I’ve had this for a few weeks and I have to say I’m surprised that it actually takes clean shavings.

Thanks for looking!

Nice work, I read an article about these one time. I’m glad it works well.

Very nice, I would have expected the blade to be reversed but it it works that’s the ultimate test.

Wow, I am in the market for a shoulder plane, this would work! I really like the design, looks like you really spent some time on the finer parts.

Great job! I’m almost finished with my chisiel plane also which I’ll post. I noticed two differences. I cut the angle of the chisiel 45 degrees and installed the chiesel bevel down. Just a quick test run didn’t produce very good results. Your angle looks a little steeper but those shavings are great. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the great comments!

@Bsmith: The angle of the chisel is at 45 degrees. The opposing angle for the wedge is at 51 degrees.

That’s very beautiful! I like the padauk “liner” piece—it’s a striking design element. I’m curious how you constructed that—did you cut the plane body apart, glue on the paduak, and then attach both parts separately to the shoulder element?

Have your say...
