This router plane was inspired by planes made by Mafe and Tinnocker.

It’s made from hard maple and finished with a couple coats of polyurethane. You can read more about it in my blog. The blog also contains a video of how I made my version of the router plane.

Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel because I plan to post projects on a regular basis.

Take care

Hi Doug,
What a nice routerplane, crisp lines, nice materials, elegant finish.
Cool with the crome adjuster.
Love it!

An Allen wrench for a blade….This is why I love Lumberjocks. Something different all the time. Well done Doug.

That is cool. No tool give more satisfaction than one that you have made that looks good and works well. Your grandkids should get a lot of use out of this tool.
