Plane Making Weekend

The weekend went very well and everyone managed to get their planes clamped up on day one. You can never have too many clamps!

That gave plenty of time for blade sharpening and enjoying some of Barrie's homemade birthday cake.

The transformation from rectangular block to rough shaped plane, is made with just three cuts on the band saw.

Time for plenty of hand work, here Matthew is using an excellent HNT Gordon spoke shave on the pull stroke to avoid tear out.

Martin is using an older style HNT Gordon shave which has plenty of weight.

Time seemed to run away on the second day but everyone finished their plane by the end of the day. A very enjoyable weekend, I'm very much looking forward to this weekends class.
