Making and Using Tools - Planes, Scrapers, and Shaves


 
  Two Small Planes by James E. Price 2 of 2  

The irons for both planes were made from pieces of worn-out Stanley plane irons.

The last photo shows where I made the cuts in the iron to extract a little blade. I figured that out first and then made a whole series of planes into which these little blades fit perfectly. It saved lots of time because I did not have to do much cutting or grinding to make the blades.

The inlays in the cherry stocks for these two planes are made from ebony.
