No woodworking tool is more satisfying, quick and precise to use than a handplane. Planes can process timber in its rough state, bring boards up to a glimmering smoothness, cut rabbets, dados, grooves and other joints, and trim wood with a precision that has yet to be matched by power tools.Yet many beginner and professional woodworkers are intimidated by handplanes. This book is here to set the record straight. Plus, this edition includes 14 new articles as well as new and updated tool reviews.
Handplane Essentials contains everything you need to choose the most suitable plane for your project and your budget, as well as to sharpen it and use it successfully. Compiled from more than 15 years of the author's writings about handplanes in magazines, trade journals and blogs Handplane Essentials is a primary guide for woodworkers, living up to the root word Essential in its title.
