Plane, Chamfer (PDF)

This is Chris Swingley is version of the chamfer plane that appears in John M. Whelans Making Traditional Wooden Planes. Rather than stick with tradition, he decided to make a two piece laminated body. This makes cutting the mortise for the stop, wedge and iron much easier, and it allowed him to make the V sole by planing an angle on each half of the plane body. The iron is made from a piece of O1 tool steel, hand shaped, hardened in the wood stove and tempered in the oven. NOTE: You must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader program on your computer to view this plan.

Plane, Benchtop Spill (PDF)

These are plans based on the spill plane Roy Underhill made on The Woodwright is Shop (2002 season, episode 2205). Before matches were a commonly available item people would run a scrap of wood over a spill plane to generate long, tightly curled shavings of wood (called spills). These were typically in a jar above the fireplace so that when you needed to light a candle or your pipe, you could grab a spill, light it in the fireplace and take the flame with you.

Plane Handles, Rosewood (PDF)

Our rosewood front knob is pretty much the standard turned shape. A sculpted T-shaped handle would better match the shape of your hand, but it would be difficult to mass produce economically in wood, so we have settled for a nicely shaped version of the ordinary round knob.
