but do not want to spend $75-$150 for a Stanley 95 or a Lie
This one I made out of Sepele wood. I also dug
around in my vintage hardware stash and found two brass finials
to adorn the mahogany jointer fence I made yesterday. Both
fences work perfectly in planing edges of boards for joining.
Consider making one; you'll like using it.
I also deal with adding a temporary fence to a
common block plane to make an edge trimming plane.
I made it out of scrap wood and odds and ends in

making the fence. If you want a cheap edge-trimming plane, this
is the way to get one.
The jointer fence in the background is the one I made yesterday.
I made the one in the foreground today. The top fence is mounted
on a common Stanley No. 5 and the bottom one is on a Bedrock
This is the one I made out of mahogany yesterday with brass
finials added to the elevator bolts to give it a little flash.
The two fences are interchangeable between a Bedrock 605
and a common Stanley No. 5.
