The goal with shaping wood is to create on of three shapes. A Concave (hollow), A Convex (round), or a flat. By combining these three shapes one can create anything. Molding planes are designed to create these shapes and by combining different sizes of hollow and rounds you can create and molding ever produced or even moldings of your own design.

The sizes of hollow and round planes TYPICALLY correspond to a numbers 1-18. Usually these numbers represent 16th of an inch. A set of no. 4 hollow and rounds would be 4/16 = 1/4" planes. A set of no. 8 would be 1/2” because 8/16 = 1/2”. So on and so forth.

In this class you will make a set of hollow and rounds. You can choose the size. If you do not know what to pick, a set of no. 6 (3/8) is a great place to start you kit.

This is a Hand Tool intensive class and some experience with hand tools is required. We are not using hand tools to be cool. We will be using hand tools because this project require precision only hand tools can offer. This is a great way to take your hand tools woodworking to the next level.

We will be shaping, hardening, and sharpening blades made from 0-1 tool steel.
