    “timber is a tree and lumber is the product after the log is sawn” – great sentence to remember it!

    I wonder what the average world people would think, when reading “a truck full of lumber” 😀


    PS: i think, these czech planes can be good. Czech people are well known to be good woodworkers and a lot of furniture goes there from Germany for restauration. And, as I said before, the design is very standard for northern european planes.

    Is anyone still interested in these planes? I have just seen the topic, and i hope its not too late too answer.
    I have two Pinie planes: 2 45, and 2 39. They are probably the cheapest useable wooden hand planes you can find. Not a great quality, but useable.
    They have some issues, though. Iron bed needs some tweaking, they may come with the slightly twisted sole, hornbeam handle looks like its gonna fall of, iron needs sharpening and the mouth opening is too wide for a fine work. … But its all pretty much easy to fix.
    On the other hand, planes are light, easy to use and the iron is not too bad. It is hardened to 58 HRC witch is way better than the rest of the really cheap irons you can find. It needs to be sharpen more frequently than premium planes iron, but apart from that it works just fine.


    @sasakukic Thank you for your feed back.

    Just to add my input…
    I have the Pinie scrub plane. It’s lightness and the way it slides across the surface is great for hogging off chunks when thichessing by hand. I have since rounded my number 5 1/2 blade and tend to go with this more often. Just depends how much material I want to take off.


    Thank you for your feedback.

    I bought the scrub, the smoothing, and a rebate plane and am pleased to say they are wonderful. I would round off the angular edges on the wood for greater comfort and the blades out of the package need to be polished up. Otherwise A+ for Pinie or Infinity Tools in the US.

    I had the 18mm shoulder plane, converted it to a grooving plane. 250Kc (about 8 quid) a couple of years ago.
    Picture attached. Fence swaps sides easily if you need to change direction because of grain direction. Nickers are the blades from a plasterboard plane. (Also used them for a knifing gauge as well, work surprisingly well.)

    … and the guy who cuts “timber” is a “Lumberjack”. 😀

    We call them “Tree Fellers”. But the fella might be female.

    During WWII in the UK there were all-female crews of loggers known as “Lumberjills”.



    Timber is a tree and lumber is the product after the log is sawn.

    I have been known to pickup free wood where I find it.


    The term ‘Lumber’ is also a verb here in this original home of the language, meaning in its politest form, an ‘unwelcome encumbrance’.

    Welsh is an ancient language, where one word covers the whole thing, alive or dead, standing or felled – Coed. (pronounced ‘coyd’, not ‘co-ed’).
