Small Scraper Plane (x 2)

Here are two small scraper planes, krenov style. The center body and rod is bloodwood on both. The one on the left has white oak sides and wedge, the one on the right has cherry sides and wedge.

They are finished with about 3 coats (so far) of Brush Oil.

I used a couple extra block plane irons I had laying around.

Blade angle is 95 degrees.

I’ve already tested them out. I was adding a sole to a coffin plane out of maple. I tried my bench and low angle planes. Here was the outcome.

After the small scrapers:

So why two? I’m not sure. It just seemed like the thing to do at the time.

These are so nice, I have to put this on the to do list. And look at that leg vise in action! Nice clamping capacity.

Mauricio, Blade angle is 95 degrees.
Jim, these are two block plane irons I had laying around. I had a handful of these type irons, its part of the reason I decided to build 2.

Those are beauts Don. Love the results shots.

I’ll say it again, the volume of production coming out of that shop of yours is just staggering.

Thank you for posting.

Pretty cool Don. So are the blades still at 25° bevel? Then a 70° bedding angle…sorry to be so dense.

Shane. Blade is bedded at 95 degrees. It is still sharpened at 25 degrees. It then has a hook added just like a card scraper. (the same way I sharpen for my #81)

They look great Don. Is there anything you would have done differently now that they are finished?

Great as always Don.

Hey, just wondering.. With an iron like that, do you need to camber the blade a bit to prevent tracks?

I may try to make one of those.

Sam, I’ve only actually used them the one time, so not yet.

TechRedneck, I haven’t had to.
