This is one of the Kernov planes I made while attending Inside Passage School in Roberts Creek B.C. Of course you need a plane hammer so we made this one as another project. Takes 2 to 4 weeks for the wood to settle every time I go to the coast, depending on humidity! Currently work on a big brother, 2” made from Vera.

Nice plane (and hammer). But isn’t it Krenov, not Kernov?
How long will the next one be?

Yup, just looked over on the book shelf, it is Krenov.
The 2” will only be about 2” longer but almost twice the weight.
Got to go back, still have 4 weeks left to complete my 1st year and the
place has to be experienced to believed, most of Krenovs tools are there.
Made arrangements to borrow some of there planes when I go back so mine can stay home.

Nice plane rad! The finger indents on the side make it look comfortable to hold and use. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful work Andre, I bet it is a real pleasure to use.
