Wooden hand planes can be confusing to the new hand tool user because it isn’t very intuitive how to use them. In this video, I attempt to demystify the process.
On today’s show, I discuss making cabinet backs, my personal finish preferences, achieving full width shavings, natural finishing products, and taking a project from concept to final finish.
In this video, I discuss using a frame saw for resawing, and planing the end grain of thick hardwood pieces.
On today’s show, I discuss paring yellow pine end grain, using cambered irons to square board edges, making moldings with a combination plane, more on reference surfaces, and sliding dovetails.
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.
On today’s show, I discuss hand planing vs. sanding before finishing, shoulder planes, working with long stock, side hung drawers, and moving your shop.
On today’s show, I discuss multiple irons for a try/jointer plane, clarifications on the fore plane, tips for planing square board edges, building a stand alone shop, and hammer veneering.
On today’s show, I discuss smoothing end grain to long grain transitions, more on in-cannel gouges, rust control in humid shops, working end grain with hand tools, and getting started with green woodworking.
Do you really need a plane with a low cutting angle to efficiently plane end grain?
Managing tearout doesn’t have to be a chore.
