“My simple message is that if you’re going to approach woodworking with sensitivity and maybe refinement, planes are a good way to begin.”  – James Krenov

Happy New Year!

What better way to begin a new year than making a wooden hand plane? The response you get from a wood plane is altogether different from when you are working with metal hand planes. The tactile feeling absorbed through the sole of a perfectly flattened and polished wooden hand tool you made yourself is a satisfying and liberating experience.

Simply put, wood on wood just feels good!

The Jack plane is one of the most useful tools in the woodshop, capable of taking heavy cuts for dimensioning rough lumber, jointing the edges of stock, and also fine smoothing.

If you take care when building the plane and make the sides square to the sole, it can also be used on a shooting board.

A versatile hand plane to start with, this Jack plane will fill many needs around the woodshop.
