First piece of intermittent lignum boxing in place on the rebate plane builds
#handtools #planemaking #planemaker #woodenplane #rebateplane

Got a call from my older brother's best friend (so sort of my second older brother) Ken, @elliottflooring, with an emergency flooring install problem.
He had some transitional pieces that weren't cut properly and he needed them fixed ASAP.
Because all of the other profiling was already done, it wouldn't have been an easy task to fix it with power tools, so he wanted to know if I could do it with hand tools.
The gist of it was that he needed about 1/8" removed from the middle section.
Yep, I could do it, I told him.
So he dropped it off last night. I got out my Stanley No78 and went at it.
The pieces were 9' long and I only have a 7' bench, so I had to do it in sections.
Still, it didn't take too long to sort out.
And I'm not sure I need to explain how good it feels that a) my friend comes to me to solve such a problem and b) I was able to solve said problem with relative ease.
I should point out that I had the 78 set to take some pretty heavy shavings because I didn't want to take all night.

For #woodshavingwednesday I'd like to share the shavings from my glued up cherry scrap #rebateplane #rabbetplane what a treat to use.

Tuned up a 50 year old untouched #stanleyno78 #rebateplane , love that whistle as she goes 😃 #woodshavingwednesday #oak #woodworking

Drilled through and cut the bed and breast on the table saw with a thin kerf blade.

I made this rebate / shoulder plane back in 2006. In between my first and second year studying a City & Guilds in cabinetmaking. The body is Jarrah with an ebony sole and a 3/4" @hntgordon blade bedded at 60°. Most of it was made on a workmate workbench in a tiny backyard of a Stoke Newington flat. Still works pretty well 😊

Got to play with my poor mans rebate plane before work, and it works!! The fence works well and adjusts nicely, had to put more of a taper on the wedge to prevent it getting all clogged up, but now i have a working rebate plane for nothing more than a few hours playing about. Couldn't get a decent video of it working as the lighting in my garage isn't the best 😂 but i did manage i nice in action shot #woodworking #rebateplane #makeyourowntools #justshavingsomewood #poormansrebate

New experience. Making rebates freehand, and creates nice little curls.
I must confess that I felt tempted to bring out the No78, which has fence and depth stop, but I finished them with this one.

Contrasting square, and skewed intermittent lignum boxing. #handtools #unplugged #planemaking #planemaker #woodenplane #rebateplane

The skewed, and square rebate planes are now boxed, oiled, and cutting wood . I still need to fine tune them a bit, but so far so good.

More lignum intermittent boxing.
I have now moved onto the skewed rebate plane. Dovetailed boxing at a 22 1/2 degree skew . I'm beginning to see why this detail went out of fashion! This procedure would be so much easier with a mill or a router, but where would the fun be in that....

It's amazing what a difference a few chamfers, gouge cuts, and a shaped wedge make to the overall appearance of a plane. The rebate build continues. .....

For goodness sake, how many tools do I really need?, I'm only making a rebate plane!

Cutting the volute on the rebate planes.
I started this process by boring a hole with a 7/8" centre bit, then enlarged it with carving gouges, rasps and knives.

The square, and skewed rebate planes are now marked out, and templates made from originals for the throat cut outs. It was interesting to find that all the examples I measured had two common features. They were all pitched at 47 1/2 degrees, and the center of bed was always dead center of the stock, regardless of the plane length. The skew angle was also constant at 22 1/2 degrees.

First stages of the rebate plane build.
I always spend plenty of time making sure the stock of the plane is perfectly square before setting out. Any discrepancies will play havoc, especially on the skewed version. I tend to rely heavily on my trusty Norris plane at this stage. It's so super accurate I can trust it to square everything up perfectly.

Another one to add to my collection, first one in its original box is this Stanley #78 rebate plane!

After my recent plough plane build, I have decided to make my next project a bit simpler, or so I thought. When deciding on an 18th century style plane build, my first task is to study as many examples as I can. This group of 8 are by a variety of makers including Phillipson, Jennion , owen, John Hazey, and John green. I was unsure as to whether to make a skewed, or square example, and studying this group didn't help much as it's a 50/50 split. Oh well , decision made, I will make one of each and decide which I prefer!

Finished my Poor mans rebate plane (following Paul sellers video) quite happy with the result, just using up some.scrap wood and getting a tool out of it, i'll throw up a video of how well it works once I've had a bit of practise with it, but it works!! Honest 😂 #woodworking #paulsellers #poormansrebate #makeyourowntools #scrapwood #rebateplane #rabbetplane

Made my own mahogany rebate plane, with the help of the #paulsellers "Poor man's Rebate plane" YouTube tutorial. Has to be one of my favorite projects. I get the giggles with every perfect shaving that hits the floor. .

Just made my first ever traditional #rebateplane . I needed one to make marquetry bands for the coffee table top. Many thanks to @paul.a.j.sellers for his invaluable lessons on youtube, it works beautifully!
