English Hand Tools with Jim Hendricks

  English Boxwood Jointer - part 3 23 of 27  

I'm happy with the size and shape of the finial and the fit.

Flattening the Sole

I used a long sheet of Corian onto which I taped high quality 120G abrasive. I then tested the plane on English yew and it performed beautifully.

Corian is super flat and ideal for this job. The MIRKA 120G roll is taped
down across the width with 3M double-sided tape to prevent waves.

The iron and wedge are fitted but retracted.

The sole is hatched with pencil to check progress.
