A few months ago i bought some pieces of oak to another project but i saved one of the pieces for special occations/projects. The grain was tighter and the weight was heavier than the other pieces. I saved it, wanted to make something useful of it.
I decided to make a hand plane, Krenov style. I realize that oak is not the optimal wood for making hand planes but i think that this piece probably would make a fine plane. I also made a wooden mallet.
Now i need to buy my self a really good plane iron, the one i used so far i borrowed from an old Stanley plane.
This project was really fun, it didn’t take long, wasn’t too difficult and its useful.
and PS the plane works really well!
