Violin Making Planes

Christopher Martyn at Finely Strung has a great article on making instrument planes!

His are tiny, elegant and simple.  Using Krenov’s basic method, he shows how to make a great little plane.

With a few toothing blades from Lee Valley, or A top notch O1 plane blade, you could easily put together some really nice tools.

  • Those are very cool planes! Thanks for the link. I can add that to the growing list of tools I would like to try and make.

  • I have a ton of steel grinding ahead of me, or I would have already made a few. I am looking forward to seeing your interpretation of the planes, Sir Richard!
