MaFe style Kanna II
Japan meets Krenov
1. The Naga-Dai-Kannas first shaves.
2. The old Japanese kanna-mi (plane iron) that inspired me to the project.
3. Restoring the blade.
4. Resetting the edge of a Japanese kanna-mi.
5. Fitting the kanna.mi in the dai (body).
6. Drilling for the uragane-dome (pin).
This post is from the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/40431
This is kind of cheating – since I did post the plane earlier, but at that time it was only the dai (body) that was done, but I was just so proud, that I could not wait, to share the build I did in Scotland, during the visit to my friend Jamies place.
Now the kanna is up and running and I posted two blogs: one about restoring the old Japanese plane iron and one about the final setup and mounting of the plane iron.
(So those who don’t like recycle posts, run away fast). ;-)
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.
Now it is finally a reality.
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 made in this way.
Jamie please look at the blog and thank you for making this possible.
