DIYourfaceoff's Krenov-style Plane

DIYourfaceoff's Krenov-style Plane

Stephen, of DIYourfaceoff, built a beautiful Krenov-style plane using a HOCK blade and documented his experience here. Notice that he used a 1/2″ dowel for the cross-pin. I recommend that change from the “official” Krenovian methodology. It works just fine and saves having to fuss with the more traditional pivoting cross-pin (which is a PITA to make.) Nice work!

HOCK TOOL'S Shoulder Plane Kit

And Matt Vanderlist of Matt’s Basement Workshop built a HOCK Shoulder Plane kit and seemed to have a good time doing it. He varied from our “official” instructions with the not-quite-through holes for the locator dowels. Good idea!

Thanks to Stephen and Matt for documenting and sharing their tool-making experiences.
