This is my first attempt at a Krenov style handplane. The blade is from Hock, I’ve used their blades to replace most of my Stanley plane blades that I reconditioned and they are outstanding!
I used Osage orange for the body, a scrap of cherry for the cross pin, and a scrap of bloodwood for the wedge. It was intended to be a practice piece, but it turned out much better than I anticipated.
The most challenging part, in my opinion, was getting the ramps to be perfectly flat and clean of saw marks. I tried to use a block plane to get that done, but didn’t have much success, so in the end I put a sanding disk on my table saw and used the miter gauge to clean it up, worked like a charm.
