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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
