Homemade Japanese Plane – Kanna

Homemade Japanese Plane – Kanna

My Free Plans: https://paskmakes.com/free-plans/

Before I started this project I knew next to nothing about Japanese planes. After some research I was confident to give it a try and I’m glad I did as it turned out so good. I’ve always wanted to make a plane but up until now it just hasn’t happened.

As I mention in the video my son was trying his hand at hand planing with a Stanley no4 and was struggling (probably due to not being tall enough for the bench) but I thought a Japanese style plane may be easier. That’s the reason I decided to get on and make one.

I also found this site very helpful

As always I’m happy to answer any questions.

    Thumbs up for Bradley. Keep it up mate.

    Hey Pask mate.. Why did u have to make the original blade so much bulkier?? Is that to give it extra weight for shaving wood or is there another reason for doing that.. I love these Japanese Planes. They look so simply made but there’s defo a real art to it..
    Those shavings are so thin mate u could put a load of them together with a water based adhesive and make tracing paper.. It would be a sick idea to try that Pask if u ever have the time..

    You’re an awesome dad. Years from now he’s going to look back at these videos and the effort you put into helping him learn and enjoy this craft!

    Buddy, that was brilliant! Not only are you gifted in your ability to visualise what is possible from your available material, but you also have the gift of communication to inspire so many with the self belief needed to achieve some of what you show us is possible. Watching your channel is like having ones own personal guide and mentor. And what’s also great is that your videos never are never just one more demonstration of sxpertly managed machinery, processing some wood, with which YT is littered by the thousands, but they show what can be achieved with the pretty basic handtools, available at minimal expense to anyone who wants to have a go, and experience the glow of realising that they too can make things that do the job. A truly exceptional talent and a truly exceptional channel.

  12. Cristea Nicolae on August 21, 2022 at 12:56 am

    Hi, good, beautiful and very interesting your movie on YouTube, I did not see the sharpening angles of the blade nor the angle of placement of the blade in the hand planes. Beautiful, very beautiful puppies! Greetings from Romania ! 👌👍👉🥃🤗

  17. John Carter on August 21, 2022 at 1:02 am

    Not a top quality tool maybe but everything you make works exceptionally well



  18. Digo on August 21, 2022 at 1:03 am

    Boa noite todas essas plantas os ângulos onde fica a lâmina e 45



  19. gantz4u on August 21, 2022 at 1:03 am

    The purpose of the plane is to square lumber thats been hand hewn from logs. All your timber looks to be dimensional lumber. What are you doing? You think this is a tool for making fire starting kindling from boards?



  20. Pask Makes on August 21, 2022 at 1:05 am

    I should have said in the video that Bradley isn’t tall enough for the workbench. I did mention this in the description though but as not many read the description I’ll pin it here. 😉



  21. Roberto Duo on August 21, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Please spanish



  22. Andrew Zyazev on August 21, 2022 at 1:06 am

    7:28 He’s too short, that’s why he’s struggling. Raise him up a few inches.



  25. Loyd Alexander on August 21, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Hea don’t tell anyone but I copied your round over one awhile ago thanks works great to thanks sir I appreciate your videos



  26. bomaite1 on August 21, 2022 at 1:11 am

    When you chisel an opening in a plane like that, it is sometimes useful to clamp another piece of wood on top of your blank that has the correct angle which you have sawn with your chop saw. When you get close, you can press your chisel up against it with the fingers of one hand while you smack it with the mallet using the other hand. If you do it right, you can get a smooth ramp of the correct angle in one go.

    A bit of wax on bottom might help him



  28. Beuwen the Dragon on August 21, 2022 at 1:13 am

    A Top Quality tool is one that performs its function well, is ergonomic to use and won’t fall apart when you use it.



  29. Hercules II Bermil on August 21, 2022 at 1:15 am

    just got a plane blade from a flea market today, paid 50 cents. it’s all dirty, rusty, but still sharp, that’s amazing! Looking for ideas what plane to make out of it.

    Love your woodworking and your dogs are super cute. Always wanted a job where I could take my dogs to work with me. The postal service frowned on pets on postal property. Keep the videos coming!

    Good job..!
    I have always wanted to make a Japanese kanna for myself but just never got around with it. Perhaps I give it another go…



  47. Murugan Sreeram on August 21, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Helo sir this is ok but what degree



  48. imetr8r on August 21, 2022 at 1:32 am

    You should have mentioned the angles used in carving the die.
