There is really nothing as gratifying as making your own woodworking tools. Making tools used to be part of a woodworker's life but it happens less often in these modern times. Join Vic Tesolin for a day of plane making. 

You'll be making a smoothing plane that you can pull instead of push. Vic has developed this design by combing the function of a Japanese plane and blending the construction styles of a Krenovian plane. The result is a plane that is relatively easy to make and a joy to use.

While the glue dries on your plane, Vic will then take you through the construction of a wooden plane adjusting hammer. Made from strong hardwood, this mallet is perfect for adjusting the blade as well as setting the wedge.

By the end of the day, you will have a brand-new wooden plane and a plane adjusting hammer that will give you years of enjoyment. Vic will guide you through setting your plane up and how to adjust it with your plane hammer.
