Creating a Profile Plane

In this course, you will make your own round bar plane from a solid piece of steamed beech....
Whether it is a concave plane or round bar plane, ogee or profile plane for complex profiles, they are all not easy to get hold of. In combination with a shoulder or rebate plane you can quickly create interesting profiles that can normally only be created using expensive milling tools.
In this course, you will make your own round bar plane from a solid piece of steamed beech. Scribing the plane mouth, the metal grommet and the soleplate as well as exact working of the plane body are significant steps in this process. You will fit the metal blank made of carbon steel to the soleplate. After hardening and tempering the blank, the metal is sharpened and fitted into the plane. The wooden wedge as well as the outer appearance of the plane can be done according to your own custom design.
  • If you book more than one course with Garrett Hack, we'll give you a DICTUM voucher worth €20.
