Welcome to March’s Tool of the Month! This month it’s the Scrub Plane...
The Scrub Plane is a short narrow hand plane with a thick cambered (rounded) blade, they are used to quickly remove lots of wood from the surface of a board, such as when eliminating cup or twist in the first stages of preparing rough stock before being cleaned using jointer and smoothing planes, or when reducing the thickness of a board significantly.
They are used diagonally across the grain and leave behind a wonderfully tactile ridged surface that sometimes can be made into a feature!
That’s all for this month, look out for the next blog post soon!
