Anthony, I see now after watching the video. angling the breast side of the wedge will keep it tight into the wedge cavity.

For those who have been nail biting over whether or not this beautiful piece of quilted maple would survive, I'm happy to report that she is doing just fine.

Pic #1
I chiseled down along my knife wall a few more times to give myself a deeper recess, then used the saw to cut my wedge shape. Chopped out the bulk of the waste with chisels. I'm about 1/16" - 1/32" away from my line all around.

Tomorrow, I'll make sure my chisels are nice and sharp, then go to work paring down to my lines.

Pic #2
Got a ways to go yet, but the wedge should line up nice once it's done.

Anthony, you are doing great. doesn't the maple pare nicely? I watched Pauls video on this project as you suggested plus 4 others. I think you will be hooked after making this plane and will continue to make variations of it in the future. I bet you can't wait to take your first shavings with this project.

Definitely excited! I'm hoping I get those long pigtail curl shavings like in the video - very satisfying.

If this goes well, I might trying my hand at making my own #4 style plane.

Houston, we have a problem...

Lack of planning has reared its ugly head.

Got my chisel bed cut down to depth and mostly cleaned up. Enough to get the chisel in there for a test fit. Discovered that my plane body is too tall. The machining of the chisel widens at the top where it meets the handle, and I didn't account for that. As-is, the chisel won't rest flat against the bed, so I need to cut about 1" off the overall height. I'm also too thick. Honestly, I doubt this would hurt anything, but I decided to trim 1/2" off the overall width as well.

I'll run a test piece of this maple through my crappy Little Tykes bandsaw, but I doubt it will handle it at this thickness. Probably end up using had saws again.

If your going to put a fence on the bottom, I would wait about cutting the width. Shortening the height though will be necessary...remember to take it off the top.

Anthony, It would make for a more comfortable grip if it was narrower on the upper body of the plane, but isn't a necessity for it to work. I would wait and see until you decide about mounting a fence to the bottom.

Here's where I am now. Lopped off 1" along the top edge, planed it square again. Probably 95% on the chisel bed. Just some minor fine tuning left. Got the wedge cut down and roughed to shape. Next, I will plane the edge of the wedge to match the 100 degree angle in the plane body.

Gary - I plan on doing some shaping to the body. I'll leave the very bottom square so there's something to register against, but I want to use some rasps and files to round over the top edge for comfort.

Managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Plane body split in two different places. Let me rewind...

I decided to make a new wedge. Took it for a spin and tried my plane on a piece of pine. You can see the shavings I was getting in the pic. Not long pigtail spirals, but it was a start. With the final pass, I lost my grip on the plane and it fell to the floor wedge first and jammed the wedge in there hard enough to split the wood. It would almost be funny if it weren't such a tragedy.

You can barely make out the split on this side in the pic, and it's split along the top also.

And thus ends the story of my almost hand-made rebate plane LOL.

Anthony, what a bummer. I know you are heartbroken, sad, and mad as hell. A good nights sleep and you will feel better tomorrow. You sure did a good job on that plane. I think everyone watching you build the plane was excited to see the end results. Not the dropping part.

Anthony, consider putting down some foam 2íx2í interlocking flooring in your handtooling area. It provides a soft landing for dropped tools. Itís easier standing, too. I bought mine at Samís Club.

Here's the real kick in the head. I have a few packs of those 2x2 interlocking squares (mine are grey) sitting in corner, still in the packaging.

@hawkeye10 - Yes, I'm frustrated. It sucks to put so much into something and come away empty handed. But, these things happen and it's just a block of wood, right? Might be a little while before I attempt another plane, but the best thing is to just move forward to the next project.

Anthony, Treat it as a test plane, fill the crack with glue, rubbing with your finger across the crack to pump it in, or use a vacuum to pull the glue in, let dry, and keep going. Your shavings will be better with a sharper chisel. The wedge ramp must be parallel to the bottom...and I find a straight ramp is easier than a curved ramp. Don't stop, this is only a short set back. All your effort is not in vain...it will still work.

Anthony, there are other causes that can give you short shavings. One being, the plane bottom flexes and is no longer straight when the wedge is set tight. To straighten you set the wedge using a shim and the iron so the wedge does not protrude past the bottom, clamp the plane in your vice...take a couple shavings with your hand plane to straighten.


Another thing could have been your test woods grain, or too deep of a cut, dull iron.
