Adjustable Mouth Krenov-style Plane Finished

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

This was my third time making a Krenov-style plane, but my first time incorporating an adjustable mouth into one.  These are always a lot of fun to make and also very enjoyable to use.  They admittedly  take a little practice to learn how to use them properly, but once you get the gist you’ll find yourself reaching for them instead of your steel planes.

I plan on having the build video ready for this Friday and I hope you’ll give it a look.


45 Degree Krenov

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

I finished making my second wooden hand plane this weekend.  This time I used the correct bed angle of 45 degrees and I made a much smaller mouth opening.   A smaller mouth will help hold the fibers down better in front of the iron and help to prevent tear out.

If you’ve never made a wooden hand plane, give it a try.  My recent video release could serve as a nice resource.

Walnut again with two applications of paste wax.








Krenov Plane (One more)

Ok, I’m pretty sure it works.  🙂

After making a few shavings with this, it gets to be addicting.  It’s hard to put it down smile emoticon

I was going to auction this off on my website with a starting price of $50 (cost of the blade and chipper), but I’m undecided.

Would anyone be interested in bidding?
