Hollows and Rounds
Hosted by Tod Herrli
the first in a series of plane making videos, will show the viewer how
to design and construct a pair of size #14 Hollow and Round. Tod
Herrli uses a mix
of traditional and modern construction methods in this introduction to
wooden plane making. This type of plane is the most basic
plane and yet, with a complete set
, you can create
or re-create any style of molding. After you have completed
first pair of planes, you will be ready to make an entire set, or move
onto more complicated molding profiles.
The DVD has 15 chapters
for direct access to any section of the show, including the measured
say, I don't have any planemaker's floats! Not to worry, Tod
shows you how to make your own set.
**** Sharpening, how do I sharpen a hollow iron??? Tod shares his grinding and buffing secrets.
The tape comes with a complete set of plans for the planes and all the jigs needed. Here are a few behind the scenes shots of the location shoot at greenwoodworking .
you don't want to do make your
own irons, Bob Howard, of St. James Bay Tool
will sell you the blanks you need for your planes.
They are made from O-1 Steel. Just let him know what size
you are making and he will send you the irons. Then just
the plane profile on the iron, grind, harden (the fun part) and
temper. He will also have Side and Edge floats
. You can contact Bob at (800) 574-2589 for more
