The Chamfer Plane


Hi Folks
Some exciting news - a new plane model! Introducing the "Chamfer Plane"....

This is a simple but joyful little plane. You set the adjustable fence to the width of the chamfer you need, set the iron for a suitable depth of cut and get planing! Once the full profile is cut the plane stops cutting - simple. And it works great on end grain, too.

I'll be making this plane in English Beech and Goncalo Alves - more details will be on my website soon. I've also put together a small video of the plane in action - see below.

If you are interested in owning one of these babies just drop me an email.

Cheers
Philly

Good video, Phil.

That looks a lot better than the Chinese plane I bought from Rutlands a few years ago - yours is actually designed to work, which does help! :D

Look forward to seeing what else you come up with.
