So here we go again. It looks like you folks are having fun making some wooden planes so lets add to the fun. Here is a great little coffin shaped smoother for your collection. This is a fantastic size and a great introduction to making a wooden bench plane. The construction of the parts is a very typical arrangement and the size of wood needed to make this is much easier to find.
Here are the plans in several different layouts. The download has four pages. First one is for shop reference with measurements and lays out everything logically but not intended to be to scale. The second is for printing to scale all on one page but is on a large standard size paper of 11″ x 17″. The last two pages are for printing to scale on your home printer paper of 8-1/2″ x 11″.
As with other free plans I offer, I have one request and that is if you want to post these anywhere else online please link back to this page/ post. I offer these as a free download but they are not intended for commercial use. Again please limit the use of this design to your personal use and please don’t be silly and try to sell them on Ebay. It is FREE! and it is © copy right protected.
CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE DOWNLOAD PAGE. (Click on the download button in the upper right corner of the new page to begin download.)
NOTE: The plans are in PDF format. If you don’t have a PDF reader Adobe Acrobat is a free software that will make it viewable and printable. Make sure where ever you print it that the “scale” is set to 100% or the measurements won’t be accurate on the print. You may need to unselect “fit to page” when printing.
If I made any errors anywhere in the plans please let me know so I can update them.
UPDATE: See videos of this plane for an unclose look here.
