For my final project, I made 3 krenov-style hand planes; each in oak with a London plane wedge.
All are designed for different jobs. The largest is a jack plane N⁰ 6.
The middle-sized plane has been designed to work the convex seated side of the seiza benches.
The smaller plane is a finishing plane N⁰4.
As a side project, I also made a series of seiza meditation benches. I had wanted to make one ever since I first saw one.
I made three – two in oak and one in London Plane.
Once reaching the finishing stages of the planes and seiza I was able to return my focus to the final course set piece, a steam-bent cabinet.
In doing so I have resolved the design for the internal shelving and doors”.
