About Project

Author Notes: 

I have always loved these hanging clipper planes, and I love making things for our son, I document most of it at http://madeatthisplace.blogspot.com.au/. I made the smaller blue one for $0, using scraps of ply and timber from the shed. Then I made the medium yellow one.

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Step 1

This is how I made the small clipper plane

I first cut a piece of 10mm x 30mm timber to 46cm in length. This became the body of the plane.

Step 2

The wings (well one wing really as it is in one piece) are out of ply cut to 68cm x 11cm with the corners rounded.

Step 3

The tail pieces are 6.5cm straight side, 4cm short straight side (attached to plane) top side 2.5cm, with the remaining side at an angle between.

Step 4

The cockpit on top measures 19cm long and 4 cm high, rounded on one side.

Step 5

Next I marked out where the wing would pass through the plane, drilled a small hole and cut a slot out on the scroll saw.

Step 6

Then it was just a matter of pushing the wings through to the centre and gluing it and the other pieces on.

Step 7

Sand and paint, and it was done. Oh and attach hooks onto the body (as it's the strongest part) and hang.

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
