MaFe style Kanna
Japan meets Krenov

My drawing for the project.

This post comes from my Japan meets Krenov blog .

For quite some time now I have had three wishes that I wanted to fulfill in one project.
1. To have a Japanese Naga-Dai-Kanna (jointer plane).
2. To combine the Krenov plane building style with Japanese planes.
3. To find use of a beautiful old hand forged Japanese plane iron that I had purchased some time back.
This project was making this possible and was made while I visited my friend Jamie in Scotland.

Pictures:
1. The Naga-Dai-Kanna.
2. Jointer plane.
3. Splitting.
4. Cutting.
5. The parts.
6. Glue up.

Hope this post can bring some inspiration, who knows, perhaps we will see some MaFe san style planes in the future, I have searched the web and not found even one.

Jamie please look at the blog and thank you for making this possible.

Best thoughts,
Mads

Nicely done, Mads. The blog post was a good read, too.

Mafe, maybe a pic of the plane in action? I’m curious about hand placement.

Edit, just saw your blog post. When things have returned to normal, would love to see it in use. Till then relax and dream of shavings!

Well done Mads. I am always impressed by your thoughtful explanations and detailed photography. You have way more patience than I for downloading all the photos.
