« Part 18: Old tools from LJ's and some small builds.. Part 19 of what i've been doing series Part 20: Pole lathe »

Here is the second part of my krenov build. I had to modify the plans a bit to fit a two inch iron. I placed a good edge on my old plane iron but it was to brittle. So I had to use a new style iron and chip breaker. I used a wine stain to give it a bit of depth. Then I sanded with 120 grit to seal the pores and used an oak gel stain. The last coat of color was walnut. It was sanded again and airbrushed with waxed shellac. I used about a 3/4 pound cut. Because of the iron change the wedge is a bit tight. She still needs to have some tweaking. So as promised here is part two of the making of the plane. After tweaking I will show how good or bad it works.

And for those that have not seen the first part it can be found here.
All questions and comments are welcome. This was a first for me and a fun build. And as all firsts, the second will be better.
Oh yeah the base is jatoba, the body is gum and maple, the wedge is an old oak fence post.
Thanks Dave ;)

Great looking plane Dave, and thanks for the entertaining step by step video. I could see myself out in the shop having a wine party with a hand plane (no one else is interested). Good fun! I was very interested in seeing you finish the plane with an airbrush. It looks like just the thing for small projects. I do believe I might try that as soon as I can figure out a way to embezzle some funds out of the joint account.

Mike as always thank you. That airbrush was from Harbor Freight. I had the little airbrush compressor back from when I raced 1/10 scale cars. It has been so handy for small frames and touch up on old furniture. I have only shot shellac through it, and it does that very well. The dye was $3.00 clothes dye from wallmart.Thank you again Mike.

Man is that cool Dave – I can still kinda see the fence post in it tho….:) JK. Turned out fantastic. I’m interested in hearing more about the airbrush and shellac…...anything special? I think I would like to learn how to spray shellac….do you ever finish up with a straight coat of denatured alcohol?

Bet that Jatoba is fun to smooth and finish…...nice job.

Jeff

edit – I guess the airbrush questions were a bit redundant…....sorry….

-- Jeff - I have not failed. I've just found 10,002 ways that won't work.

Im redundant. My mom had to tell me things two or three times. Jeff the air brush works nicely. I will spray about 4 or 5 coats the first go around. It gets a heavy over spray on the project. I use 0000 wool and bring her down. I then shoot it again HEAVY. Till the point that the finish clouds. I use BLO and steal wool and rub it down till it is smooth. And the BLO doesn’t hurt it a bit.
I have not tried to finish with a coat of pure alcohol. HMMM Might have to see how that works.
Jatoba is a great bottom on a plane. I do not want to work it at the level you do. Resawing that short piece about short circuited my bandsaw.

I might have to pick me up one of these HF guns….can I use my pancake compressor with it?

I think I read somewhere that athe last coat of straight alcohol can fix the runs and sags…..and give it a little pop….

Anything or method used to cut or shape the jatoba is a little scary…...

Jeff I use a1/10 horse diaphragm for it. I know some kits come with a reducer and a hose.

just turn down the psi to 10 – 15 lbs and try.

Thanks Joe. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Dave,
That really came out looking great!!!

It almost makes me want to become a hand tool guy! Yeah, I’m impatient and love power. Can you tell that I really liked “Home Improvement” with Tim Allen!!! Wanna play “Home Improvement” the game? I’ll play Tim, you can play AL, the guy that actually KNEW what he was doing!!

BTW: You do a great job with the video. Makes me want to stick around to see how it ends.

-- Randy-- I may not be good...but I am slow! If good things come to those who wait.... Why is procrastination a bad thing?

the shellac tuch over was great :-)

but I can´t understand why you didn´t wait untill you have finish
the tweeking with the form of the plane
I think you want to round over the back part of the plane
so you don´t have the sharp edges

good luck driving the plane and flying the chips :-)

Ahh Dennis thank you. The plane body is done. The problem lies in the wedge. The wedge was designed for a single hand forged blade. I just need to take a rasp and relieve the wedge a little.

:-)
there is two places on a plane that need to be topnotch every time
and one is the wedge and the other is the bed for the blade
nomatter what plane you talk about
there is other planes where one or two more things need to be it too
but if you don´t get the bed and wedge right …. well…..

That is cool SuperD. I guess that’s why they call you super.

Also, I now know what a Krenov is, so I don’t have to look ignorant on other threads.
