Plane Making Weekend Pictures


At the end of a busy first day, all the planes had been clamped up and left to cure overnight.


After five minutes on the bandsaw they were transformed into a recognisable shaped.


Now the hand work begins with spoke shaves, rasps and sand paper (optional).


The bubinga was tough on the blades, so there was plenty of sharpening needed.



Bob using my Bill Carter plane to flatten the sole, there aren't too many planes that can handle Lignum without tear out!

The first coat of shellac on Grahams completed plane, this one is in English cherry with a lignum sole.

Richard taking the first test shavings on his new jack plane.


A justifiably happy bunch!
