Every so often I need to plane down a piece of wood that is too small for my jointer. To handle these small jobs, I devised a stand for my No. 5 Stanley jack plane.The plane rests upside down on two wood blocks that fit up between the ridges on the sides of the plane. This keeps the plane centered and also prevents sideways movement.The front knob pushes against the front wooden block and keeps the plane from moving backwards.With the use of a small push block, I can safely and accurately plane even tiny pieces of wood.
