What purpose is this 1800 French double iron profile plane for?
A birthday present from my French fiancé.
Next week my birthday is up so Caroline had bought me some presents while I am here in Paris, since we will not be together on the day.
My favorite was of course this wonderful old plane, its French 1800.
As many French planes beautiful in its simplicity.
The profile, showing the negative profile.
Interesting to see the way it is made, with the profile and the two cutters cut into the sides, fast and easy and then adding the sides simply by nails.
My guess will be that this plane was made by a craftsman and not a tool maker.
Here a drawing of the profile.
At first I thought window profiles, but then I realized the negative circle, this will normally never be used for window profiles due to the shadows will be hard and so the contrast will disturb our eyes.
So perhaps for furniture, door frames, who knows…
Here the happy birthday child enjoys life by the window on my little workmate table.
I even forgot my review of this table: http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/1633
