No. 1 Panel
Model shown in Brazilian Rosewood with bronze lever cap & screw
Meet the No. 1 (A1)
The first plane Joe and I made was a parallel sided, handled smoother – the second plane was a No.1 panel plane. At this early stage, we were focused on learning how to make planes – not re-invent planes. Of all the traditional plane designs, the panel plane was the most consistent across all the original planemakers. Shockingly consistent. I made a few tweaks – the raised field on the top of the front bun, but for all intents and purposes – we didn’t deviate too far from tradition. The addition of an adjuster (the ‘A’ in A1), proved to be a popular option – as you can see if you look through the gallery.
The panel plane is offered in a variety of lengths, from 14-1/2” up to 18-1/2” in 1” increments. There is also a Jr. panel plane – a narrower, 12-1/2” long version.
