You're A Weekend Away From This Handmade Hand Plane

Comments (0)

A hand plane is an essential tool for any woodworker. In fact, many woodworkers have an arsenal of planes, each for a specific use. Along with the block plane, a smoothing plane is among the most useful to own. 

While modern metal planes are certainly well made and highly functional, there’s something wonderful about a finely tuned, wooden bodied hand plane. Take one for a test drive, and you’ll quickly want one for yourself. While they can be bought, wooden hand planes are easy to make, simple to set up and adjust, and a real joy to use. The style of plane we will make is based on a design popularized by James Krenov. While similar in appearance, I’ve simplified the production process for this plane so it will be a  little easier to make.
