Building a Krenov-style Handplane with Brendan Gaffney

The laminated handplanes designed (and made famous) by James Krenov are as practical and fun to make as they are a joy to use. In this two-day class, students will make their own standard (45°) or York (50°) pitch smoothing plane and learn to sharpen, maintain and use these wonderful tools. Each plane will be made with a Hock Tools plane iron, hardwood body, applied sole and carved crosspin. In learning to make these planes, students acquire a skill that will impact their cabinetmaking and furniture making – and leave with a great new tool and the ability to make many more like it, with relative ease and widely reconfigurable special purposes and uses. Krenov often called the handplane “the Cabinetmaker’s violin” – but one needn’t be a luthier to make their own.

Registration for the class is free. Registrants will be invoiced for the $360, which includes all materials (and a brand-new Hock Tools blade). A refund of your class fee will be issued in the case of cancellation if a student from the waitlist is available to take the yielded spot..
