A set of shoulder & rebate planes
I have recently completed the largest set of shoulder & rebate planes I have ever made. They are infilled with Honduran Rosewood and have bronze sides.
The rebate planes are 1", 3/4" and 1/2" wide and 9" long. They are all bedded at 28 degrees.
The wedges were all successively cut from a single piece of rosewood. There was a great “turn” in the grain that matched the shape of the wedge perfectly.
There was a bit of figure in the front infill blanks, so I shifted them forward or backward to catch as much of it as I could.
The two shoulder planes are 3/4" and 1" wide and are 8" long. These are bedded at 20 degrees.
These two wedges are also matching and have a similar grain pattern to the rebate planes.
The front infills of the shoulder planes were also cut from a single piece - the above photos shows the grain flowing from one plane to the other.
I am just finishing up 2 more planes right now - more Desert Ironwood later this week.
