In light of the success of the recent marking gauge swap, we’ve decided to swap some shop made hand planes.
Also join the Swap the knowledge.
As soon as you’ve got you’re plane completed send me a photo @ LJfirstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what it is and what you would like. At that time I’ll match you with the next available slot. If you don’t care what you get, then that will help me out. PLEASE add your address in the same email as the picture.
Oct 10th for the deadline to get me a picture of the completed plane.
Obviously the longer you wait, the less chance you’ll get a requested plane.
Even if you’ve never made a plane before, PLEASE join in. There are lots of folks here to help out.
Most of all, have some fun.
we will limit the plane making to basically wood. The body has to be wood, and it has to be a wood suitable for a hand plane. No pine or poplar or cedar, etc. Extensions like bars, sole mortises, wedges and inlays can be alternative materials if desired.
Please send a PM, even if you post it here.
Same rules as previous swaps
If you are outside the US, please note that in your PM to me, and tell me were your located
