History Of Use
Ernest Hann 1889 - 1982. Mr. Hann arrived in Smithers in 1913. He worked as a carpenter with a contracting business. For more info see Historical Research file: Hann, Ernest/Addie. This block plane could be used in a similar manner that the Jack plane was used. In an interview with Fred Hofsink, he stated that sometimes, at this size, they were referred to as both, (depending on who it was, where the carpenter learned his skill, who he had as a teacher and what country they came from). Regardless, this plane was used to smooth out corners and camfers, level off planks or to smooth wooden pieces into the exact shape needed. They were sometimes used on floor planks to make them fit closer. The rule for long planes is "the longer the plane, the smoother the cut".

History Of Use
Thor Paulson 1903-1988. Mr. Paulson built the Telkwa Creamery for the Prince George based creamery, in 1938. He managed it until 1942 when he left the area to open another creamery in Williams Lake. He moved back in 1947 and bought the Telkwa creamery. He owned and operated it for 29 years. It was the last independently owned/operated creamery in B.C. and it closed its doors in 1969. One of Mr. Paulsons hobbies was woodworking. This block plane has the appearance of being homemade. A block plane arrived at its name due to the shape. This one is designed to be used with two hands. The handle was for applying pressure while working on hardwood. It was especially useful for fine cabinetry and model work. Because the blade is set at a low angle, it is the most effective one to use on end grain. It is also the handiest tool for planning corners and camfers.
