//Frank Klausz Cuts a Monster Molding with his Molding Plane

In my above video, Frank Klausz takes us into his new woodworking workshop and shows his amazing, and huge, carpenter’s molding plane that he made at the request of his local tool collector group in New Jersey, called the “The Craft”. Frank asked me to share their website link here.

A master craftsman can make the tools he needs. He can make that tool as beautiful and functional as the product made from that tool. Frank is certainly a master craftsman.
Thanks Josh for another splendid video.

I have, for the first time understood the proper layout of dove tail construction from Frank’s very informative video, thank you.

I recently received an antique molding plane similar to this one in the video as a gift but it did not come with a blade. I was wondering if anyone knows where I might be able to get a blade for this plane?

Im considering making a wide moulding plane too…. Question: providing you have enough muscle, how wide is too wide? 4″,6″,8″?
