Infill Block Planes

The precise adjuster for the iron and the solid heft make these planes a delight to build and use.

There's nothing quite like the feeling of using a fine plane — especially if you made it yourself. And if you've never had that experience, then building one of these block planes is a good place to start. The small size reduces the time and cost compared to a larger bench plane. The metalwork involved in making the body of the plane is pretty straight-forward. And as a woodworker, you'll find making the wood infill and wedge a snap. And they're a great way to hone your shaping skills.



What You Get:

  • 12 printable (digital) pages of step-by-step instructions
