Horletoet (Bottom plane)

Although I usually work with power tools, sometimes hand tools can be very useful. That is why I made this router plane, here in Holland called a "horletoet, oudewijven tand or grondschaaf". I don't know if horletoet is a corruption of an english word. I have never met anyone who can tell me the origin of horletoet. Could it be related to horror tooth? The literal translation of  "oudewijven tand" is old wives tooth. The original name grondschaaf means bottom plane.
I made it out of Beech. It is treated with BLO. The knive is made out of an allen key. It is made after an idea of Stumpie Nubs from which you can find more at https://stumpynubs.com/

Nice little plane. I would like to give one a try to build some day, just have to figure out a good adjustment for the height, with what I have. Well done.

Dankjewel!   Thanks a lot. I always wondered where that strange word came from.  And you gave the answer.

Floor Pig! That’s what I’m calling router plane from now on…awesome!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Cool fabrication... I had enough trouble just making a box for a bought one.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

LBD:  I didn't get to the box. Way too hard for me

All others: Thanks
