Hollows and Rounds

Yes, there’s a Perfection mitre box in the picture too, but otherwise that’s a unified set of 22 H&R planes (even numbers, from 2 to 22), along with an assortment of beaders, two pairs of T&G planes, several skew rabbet planes, and even a nosing plane as well as a fillister. All marked M. Crannell, Albany NY. One owner’s mark on each of them. Maybe I should come up with one of my own?

Now to order Bickford’s book about moulding planes from Lost Art Press…


One thought on “Hollows and Rounds

    Over the years I have been unsuccessful in piece-mealing together a set of hollows and rounds. They just don’t come up often enough in my neck of the woods, or when I find them they do not look like they ever belonged together due to color or other physical variations. I don’t want to end up with a patchwork of rag-tag planes! Lately I just realized also that I’ve used the “Canada Only” filter on my eBay notifications; the good sets usually get posted by British vendors. If I had a good set, my whole mindset would be wrapped around using them (and my Stanley 45s) and build outward from them.
    Thanks for the inspiration, Smitty!
