27 May MORE wooden hand planes.
Once again Instagram has been giving people a sneak peak at the new wooden hand planes I’ve been working on. If you’re not already following I’d recommend you do so as more and more will be going up there. It’s become a firm favourite around here.
These planes were designed to be clean and simple. The internal proportions found on the original Smoother design have been retained, after all “If it ain’t broke, Don’t fix it”, but everything else has been altered. These changes have added some versatility to the plane that make them a better workshop all rounder should you so wish. Flat sides provide the possibility of use with a shooting board and the mouth design enables a good grip on the plane whilst shooting long stock or small pieces.
This Smoother is 9 inches long, an appreciable extension to the 7 inch Compact version, and the Jack Plane is the standard 14 inches. There’s another Jack Plane in the works but there’s quite a bit of testing to be done before it will make an appearance.
Thanks for reading the post and please get in touch if you have any questions.
