The plane plan
Here is the plan for the shoulder plane should you want to build one. Feel free to modify to your hearts content, it is free to share. Click for a 150 DPI scan.
2 planes, 5 times
Finally finished putting finish on the ebony wedges. I could not get poly urethane to cure, even when applied over a shellac spit coat(which could very well have been because I used a waxed shellac by mistake), so I started … Continue reading
Freedom fitted plane case
Nothing like a french fitted case to add a touch of class to a tool, eh? Especially one made of card board. I put this together so the plane can be tossed into a toolbox (or the mailbox) and not … Continue reading

Putting a lid on it
After eleven forever’s, it is starting to look like a plane. The second side was soft soldered on and, unlike the first side, didn’t stay square (it canted in a bit). A vise, a screw driver (between the plates) and … Continue reading
Show Them Bones
Ever wonder what the inside of a infill shoulder plane looks like? Probably what you expected and yes, pretty boring. Some planes use a metal plate for the wedge to bear against, but I’m going for simple here.
