Default Hand Plane

Hand Plane

I started practice of Hand Plane.
Now I do only side of board and butt end.
But it is very difficult for me to plane them being right angle.
So I make a simple base to plane it right angle.
Using hard board is better, I think. But finding a flat board is very difficult. So I use MDF.
How to use is easy. Just pull a plane.

Thickness of plane dust is around 0.05 mm.
It is ten times fatter than professionals'.

My hand plane is just 2k yen.
But it works well for this purpose.

Benny, you continue to do extremely well. I have to confess that I have been spoiled by power tools. At first glance the cost of the plane seemed very high until I checked the conversion rate, 107 yen to the US dollar making it only about $19.00 US.

Nice job Benny. What you've made yourself there is a "shooting board". There are other versions of the same thing like the "donkey's ear" which lets you plane mitres (angled faces). A hand plane is one of my favourite tools and I often use one to clean up boards after they've gone through the thicknesser.

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

Hi Benny

You've done a wonderful job.

Just a couple quick links to David J. Marks who makes his own hand planes. I believe some of his shows can be seen on TheWoodworkingchannel as well.

I have no power-planer, power-table-saw.
If I can not use plane, I can not adjust anything which need a right(not 90 degree) angle.
So... I started practice.

2k yen... it is the cheapest plane, I presume.
But there is a plane which price is more than 200k yen.
If someone buy me that kind of plane, it is the great waste... NOW.
It is just same as drinking wine... between Bordeaux and Ch.Latour.

I do not want to use 200k yen plane, but I want to drink Ch.Latour once in a life.
I am not sure that I can recognise its character.

Benny I think your sense of humour and comprehension of English is wonderful.

Geordie san
Thank you for your info.
I searched "shooting board". I only saw whitemountdesign.com.
It is helpful for me. Especially mitre jig. I will try...
And it will be fun if I have an ability to use plane to make a board flatter after sicknesser.
I should persevere for a long time....

Ken san
Thank you for your info.
I thnik it is good fun for everyone, if they can make plane by oneself, who like hand-plane.
I wonder how many kind of plane are in a world...

Harry san
It is just being...
Please do not make me buy a support of my lengthened nose...
(I do not know how to say in your country... by our expression... a nose lengthen like a Pinocchio when one is full of conceit as a good foreign-languager(any kind of).

Benny, Pinocchio's nose grew every time he told a lie,nothing to do with conceit, in any case with the work you are turning out, you are entitled to be a little conceited.
