I’m actually following a formation to became a nautical carpenter and we have problem a the beginning of this week : we need to plane the keel (picture #5) and our planes are not appropriate for some part of the keel (they are to long). As I’m explore LJ since a few weeks and all projects of MaFe (thx to him!). I know his Chisel plane (link here).

It take me about 45 min (and not 30 min, I’m learning!) to made this chisel plane, and he works perfectly for our needs. I’ve made it with scrape of oak and sapely, and I’ve put some linseed oil after.

Have a good day everybody !

Seb

Hi Seb.

Nice job. Looks like a very useful plane. Often these planes are cut away at the chisel blade end so they are the same width as the blade so you can use them in a dado.

What a wonderful little plane, I can see you put the wedge behind the blade, is this to get a higher angle? You can also turn the blade.
Smies here, thank you!, to hear this story makes it worth the time making the blog.
Best of my thoughts,

Thx MaFe, and thank you again for your blogs.

Normally I put the Wedge on the blade, not behind, but I make the mistake for the picture, lol! It’s true I’ve try behind the blade but the result is not good for my need on the moment.

Have a good day everybody!

If you trim the wedge length it can double as a chip breaker.

Very nice Seb, I’ve also made one of these. I look forward to seeing more pictures of boat building.
