Rosewood Plane Handles plansFree Rosewood Plane Handles plans - Wooden plane handles have been around in one form or another since the invention of the plane some 4000 years ago. During the past fifty years the handles made for steel bench planes have almost without exception been too small for most adult hands; they squeeze the little and ring fingers, and put too much pressure on the web between thumb and forefinger. It may be that here at the dawn of the 21st century the average hand is larger than our forefathers’ hands for whom the handles were originally designed, or it may be that plane manufacturers simply have neglected comfort in favor of tradition.
