HTT028 – Just Questions

On today’s show, I discuss planing the edges of thin stock, dado planes, replacing the blade and chipbreaker in a transitional plane, woods, glues and finishes for outdoor projects, and dealing with wood movement woes.

  1. Thank you for that episode. As usually, well explained! Could you talk a bit about miter saws (hand tool naturally)? What do you use to cut quickly 2X4 or other dimensions at different degrees ? For now , I am not using my Dewalt, it takes me a lot of time to make sure that the angle is good (using a hand plane etc to make them precise (not accurate!)).

    Cheers and thank you
