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 a method for ensuring that large workbench leg mortises are square, controlling rust on items that can’t be stored in a tool chest, saw wrests, and and proper use of reference surfaces.
On today’s show, I discuss mouth opening on wooden planes, marking knives, leveling the bottoms of deep mortises, cambering a plane iron with a honing guide, and sharpening systems.
