a wooden scrub plane.
This was suprizingly easy to build, It took all of two evenings if that. I got the blade from Woodcraft. It is a Lie-Neilson blade with the curve to it. Once adjusted, it is a real answer to thickness planing without a power planer. I was surpised at how fast I was able to plane off 3/8" of pine off a 2 x 4. Smoothing it with the #5 Stanley/Bailey was dead simple, and it is a square as can be. I always thought it would be very hard to do right, but really it isn't.
I have actually put off my purchase of a planer because of this. #planes #woodworking
