Make a Wood Hand Plane in an Afternoon Photos by Jacques Breau; Illustration by Len Churchill INFO: DIFFICULTY - 3/5, LENGTH/TIME - 2/5, COST - 2/5 In this article, I will show you how to build a bevel-up high-angle plane in an afternoon.
The main advantage of this bevel-up plane comes from the high cutting angle and tight mouth, which can cut difficult grain without tearing out.Changing the bevel angle on the iron changes the cutting angle making this plane adaptable.
The lack of a cap iron makes taking the plane apart faster and easier, hopefully leading to more frequent sharpening.This plane makes a great smoother that can handle exotic woods, or a jointer that can tackle an edge with reversing grain.
MaterialsIn order to build these planes quickly, I leave them square and boxy, use a dowel for the cross-pin and a piece of brass for the mouth insert.The bevel-up design also cuts into the build time by not needing to rout a groove for the cap iron screw.
The materials needed are: a piece of hardwood that is well seasoned and stable, 3/8" hardwood dowel, 1/8" thick brass, and an iron.I'll be using a 2" Hock iron for this plane.I chose the 4...
