Last year, I wanted to make a wooden block plane & a wooden compassplane, but I didn’t have any plans to go by. I mentioned this to JOHN WILSON, while ordering some Shaker Box supplies. He said he had some plans & said he would send them to me.
I finished this compass plane last month. I’m a fast worker!!!
John said he was writting a book called ” Making Wooden Tools”. I asked him to let me know when it be published. Well, it’s published & I ordered one. It is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In it there plans & directions to make;
and much more.
There are directions foe making thier respective blades, i.e. Cutting, shapping, hardening, tempering.
You can contact John @ his web site www.shakerovalbox.com
I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I have
