Handmade Hand Plane

5 planes  

There is something special about working wood with a tool you have made yourself. Make small wood planes for light or detail work. Begin by roughing out a plane blank on the band saw, then use existing wood planes to fashion a tool that suits you. Once you’ve made one wood plane, you will be ready to make more for a variety of tasks.
