Build a Krenov Plane


James Krenov, who passed away several years ago, was a master craftsman and teacher who had a strong influence on contemporary wood-working. He established a degree program for professional woodworkers at the College of the Redwoods in Fort Bragg, CA. One of the first student projects there is a wooden finish plane of his design.

In this class, you will make a similar plane that uses the same iron that Ron Hock developed for Mr. Krenov. We will also discuss plane design and sharpening. Students will leave the class with a fully functional finished plane. Materials included. 

Additional Information

Attendees to the class must wear safety glasses, short-sleeved shirts and covered toes (no sandals or flip-flops). We have safety glasses that can be used or new ones available for $3.00. For those with dust allergies we will have available dust masks at $.50 each.
