It has been at least five years since I first saw one of Steve Knight's wooden handplanes.I've always found them attractive and the word on the forums was that they worked great-and that's the real test of a plane.
I always had it in the back of my mind to buy a plane from him, just to support him.But then I started making my own and I never got around to it.So, I felt a bit guilty when I went to his website recently and discovered that Steve no longer sells wooden handplanes, at least not completed ones.
He does sell kits for wooden planes: a smoother, a pocket plane (bevel down), a jack, a jointer, and a scrub.I gave Steve a call and asked him to send me one of the kits-a smoother with a 55 degree frog-for review.
I'll write a separate blog about it.(I am really excited about the prospect of making and using the plane.My job doesn't suck!)...
