HOME > How to use a Japanese wooden plane
(back plate width)
- To avoid warping and quick wear, wooden blocks which have been soaked in rape seed oil can be used.
- There are many kinds of wooden blocks, thin blocks for extra-fine finishing, blocks where the mouth is made from ebony, red sandalwood, red oak, or the mouth surface is interchangeable with a sliding mechanism.
- To avoid cracks in the wood block, one can also use blocks which have ebony, red sandalwood, or bolts secured to the head of the block.
nbsp;nbsp;The sharpness of the Kanna (Japanese wooden block plane) is dependennt on the combination of the sharpness of the blade, preparation of the surface of bottom of the wooden block, and how the blade is placed. Since the wooden block can be effected by temperature and the humidity, constant adjustments to the blade end within the wooden block will have to be made.
