A list of the most common types of antique wooden planes made between 1680-1950.
Each category of plane shows a general image of that type of plane; there may be slight varitations in style for all wooden planes depending on the maker of the plane.
There will be wooden planes which will not match the planes found in these categories, often these will be due to the plane being a user made, a user adjusted or an apprentice piece. They may also be of continental origin or they may be a specialist profile.
Most wooden moulding planes which do not match a profile shown on this page will probably fit into the category of a 'complex' moulding plane.
