First Wooden Plane


Wooden planes are a sweet deal if you don't mind messing with them. This is a Ryuma "rabbet mouth groove plane" which was $30.

I had to spend about an hour and a half total on both the blade and body, and glue in two paper shims.

If you're thinking negatively of the wimpy cross-grain shavings:
  1. I sentence you to three years of power plane use in a production environment
  2. Yes, it cuts with the grain too

I bought it from Tools From Japan. Takes a long time to ship but customer service is top notch.
