|Bead Plane Size|
Beading planes were the most commonly owned and used of all moulding planes in antiquity. From doors, to openings around doors and drawers, applied trim, and shiplapped backs, a bead can be found on nearly every aspect of a piece of furniture. It finds a use in every craftsman’s tool chest.
My bead planes are made in the traditional way. The body of the plane is one solid piece of American beech that I cut and dried myself. The boxing is persimmon, which is an ebony. The blades are of O1 tool steel and tapered just like the traditional blacksmith made blades for easy of removal.
