I know you can buy infill plane kits. Presumably
some of them have instructions.

St James Bay Tool co. sells kits as reasonably
priced as any I’ve seen.

Wkfinetools.com have quite a few contributors that have somewhat detailed build processes.

Handplanes of your dreams v2.0 thread has some builders on there regularly. It might be a good place to go for specific questions.

One place is to do a search on LJ for infill plane and you will find projects and blogs about them.

Thanks a lot everyone, that’s fantastic. My end goal is something similar to a Spiers Number 1 Panel plane, making everything from O1 steel and brass stock, and handtools. Now instead of studying Microeconomics and Derivatives, I’ll be pouring over those links :p

Thanks Wayne, but Im not keen on starting with a kit. I want to gather the materials, cut everything myself and build from scratch. Yes it will be a heck load more work, yes it will come with a ton more headaches, but yes that is what I want lol. Thank you for sharing though.

I’m hoping to try and connect with a few people on here who have YouTube videos out that show them making their infill planes. It’s so exciting to me that everyone is so willing to help each other on here. I have been on other forums for other hobbies and it was generally quite catty and not very helpful at the best of times – refreshing change of pace on here.

Watch the Bill Carter videos I linked above if you have not. He makes infil planes by hand.
