Default Need a Rebate Plane...?

I'm sure most of you know of Paul Sellers...
@schnewj When my interested in older tools started to grow, Bill reminded me of Paul Sellers.

Bus was slow last night so I checked out his video on making a rebate plane...


One of his introductory statements is "if you need a rebate plane and don't have one, make one" or words to that effect.

In about 55 mins worth of video he builds one...nice too...

What caught my eye is his steady hand in using a long chisel to clean the edges (steady's it with his chin)...

...and the Stanley 71 he used to clean the bottom of the iron/wedge cutout...

...and, of course, his small inventory on the wall behind him...

If you have nothing else to do and trying to figure out what video to watch...tune this in...(couple of entertaining moments when he talks to himself as "Paul"...)

His instructional technique is easy to listen to...you won't be bored.

...oh...BTW...note his tools are very sharp...kinda makes you want to watch his sharpening videos...

@Stick486 Time to dig out your snow mobile and head down the hill to Geek Squad. No reason this should be happening. Have you run an antivirus and rootkit check? Malware Bytes? I like to fix my own computer problems, but every once in awhile, I give up and pony up for some first hand help.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Man, I love watching Paul Sellers work. Simple, elegant work. I love working with a plane. Getting irons and chisels that sharp takes a little work, but it's not that hard to do. I find myself using my block plane in particular, more and more as i gain experience.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Nick, I made this plane using an ordinary pine 2x4, just to see how well it works. The answer is fantastic! I cut the mouth angles on the table saw, cleaned them up with a hand router, then cut the wedge with a table saw. I heat treated a piece of ground 1/8" O1 steel for the blade using an ordinary bernzomatic propane torch, then tempered in the oven. It worked so well I made another from hard maple. I suggest this as the first plane anyone should make. Making this as your first plane will teach you the basics, then from there you could make hollows and rounds. I encourage anyone to watch all of Paul Sellers videos...He has mastered teaching the art of woodworking, not just telling! I have made about 20 hand planes so far, and the sound they make when using them is awesome! Try it!
