Show off your craftsmanship and attention to detail with this great-looking heirloom tool.
For years a hand plane has been the symbol of fine craftsmanship. As you can see this isn’t an ordinary plane. The design is called an infill plane since the wood parts completely fill the steel body. It combines a compact size with a thick heavy blade and a lot of mass to create the ultimate surface on wood. A high-performance tool like this doesn’t have to be complicated to build. You’ll find that the construction is mostly straightforward drilling and filing. Along the way you’ll pick up a few skills in working with metal and wood and the result is a tool you can be proud of and use every day.
