« Part 21: Sash Picture Frame Part 22 of what i've been doing series Part 23: Simple Handcut Dovetails my way. »

here is the final installment on the making of my krenov plane. I fought the wedge because of the iron change. I have it working now and it is a fine 2 inch wide smother. I wanted the width, she is a fat short plane and is working fine.
Here is the making of the plane.

Part 3

I did enjoy this, I hope you did.

Great video SD.
The best thing about hand planing is if you plane too much off you can always stick back the last (or few) shavings like a veneer to make good. :-)

Great job.
I need to make me one someday. I have this friend that is going to get into blacksmithing that I am going to try and pay him to make me an iron just for me to make one.

Glad to see you solved the your wedgie problem. It is impressive that you built a project (tool) that will allow you to build more projects.

Looking forward to your 5 sided window frame!

As much as I liked the music in the video, I much rather hear more of the sweet sound of the your hand plane shearing thru the wood. Nice shavings! Beautiful hand plane!! Glad you hung in there and not let that little wedge beat you. If it did, you’ll never hear the end of it from me. Hee Hee.

Those look a lot like Lie Nielsen shavings Dave. Pretty darn good for a wooden plane. You hit the jackpot with this one.

Well Dave that is just super!

I did not see this blog until now but I just watched the first two, nice build and video, good recovery on the iron too. It looks like some great shavings, wonderful addition to your shop.

Stumpy you a nut. Don’t change!

You are to nice Don

Hey Roger that iron is a bit dull, to my satandards. I started the project and put a fair edge on it, from all the beating and banging it is not where I like to keep my plane edges. I have just received a Tormek and love it. I use my worksharp to get the back of the iron to a flat – mirrored surface then the Tormek to place the edge on the iron. I am wanting to get a nice set of stones. But that is down the road.

Thanks for all the comments guys.
