I’ve really gotten into making tools. I’ve made several hand planes in the past and when I decided to make my toted plane, I was searching for different pictures to work on the design. While searching I came across an online article at Popular Woodworking.com by Nick Engler about a scraper plane he built out of scrap wood he had around his shop. So I figured I’d try to make one. I used mostly maple with some curly walnut for the sides and a piece of rosewood to set the tote angle better. Sadly the angle adjuster doesn’t work that well. I used an extra block plane blade I had laying around for the blade and it produces some nice shavings, in the case of the first picture, in rosewood. It was fun to make, and I may make another later on using a larger blade, but for now I’m pretty happy with this one.
EDIT: I meant to put the link to the article in here and I forgot, so here it is.
