    I have sent the plans and instructions to the group for building finger planes. Here are some pics of the ones I made. Hopefully they will help you understand the plans.

    Those are some nice looking finger planes. And a nicely carved top.

    Take care,
    Thomas

    Thanks Thomas, that top was carved primarily using those planes. I noticed you are in Italy. I was telling Ron that there are violin making families that have had wood finger planes for many generations, so to make them works of art when you make them. I just finished the final version of the bending pipe. Bent a set of sides with it, and it worked as well as my Stew-Mac one. I'll get the plans and pics out shortly.

    Is it too late to sign up? I have been hesitant so far because it seems out of my ability but I am really excited by this

    Vahn, you are in and welcome. There is a wide range of experience in the group with quite a few beginners, so you have a lot of company, don't worry. It is my challenge to direct those of you towards a reasonable goal for your experience. I hope it will be fun and interesting for all.
