I have some Japanese hand planes...but nothing like that incredible one in the video. Look at the size of the iron in that thing! Fantastic!

I've seen smaller, (normal) planes pull lacy ribbons from hard and soft wood boards but I wonder how important grain direction is. I can produce ribbons with my Stanley planes but not flimsy lacy ones like that monster does, mine are flexible but sorta stiff.

I agree Stick, you cant do that with all types of wood still the planes and sharpening are impressive. N

As soon as you get cross grain, you're done. The wood falls apart immediately.

You need to set your plane to take a thinner cut and have the blade beyond razor sharp.

1... I wonder how important grain direction is.
2... I can produce ribbons with my Stanley planes but not flimsy lacy ones like that monster does, mine are flexible but sorta stiff.
1... A lot.. be w/ the grain. against the grain or across the grain...
2... you are taking too big of a bite... the iron is set too deep...
let it protrude from the bottom of the sole about the thickness of a playing card to start and work from there...

ooops...
forgot the PF's...

I always start at -0- then turn the knob till I get a bite. I also use DMT Duosharp diamond stones along with the MKII guide and get wicked sharp edges with the micro bevel. Does it matter whether its a low or high angle plane? What about the MC of the wood?

What grit equivalent is your finest diamond stone?

A high angle plane is better for very thin strips, which seems counterintuitive.

The wood needs to be dry. Ever tried running damp lumber through a thickness planer? Ribbons of wood get peeled off the wood, not planed.
