Handmade Block Plane

Comments (0)

Turn a block of wood into a useful, beautiful tool

This block plane project is a great way to get started in plane-making. A few inexpensive items from Woodcraft and some scrap wood are all you need to make an attractive and handy tool in just a few hours. It’s as easy as cutting apart a block and gluing it back together in a different way. A simple template will help you align the parts during glue-up. Using the same techniques shown here, you can create larger handmade planes to add to your hand tool arsenal. You’ll find a new satisfaction in your woodworking when you reach for a wooden plane that you made.
