« Part 3: The First Show Has Been Posted Part 4 of Handplanes series no next part

The second of the two shows I filmed for Charles Neil’s Mastering Woodworking show aired today. In the first show I discussed the types of handplanes and showed a bit of technique for using planes to flatten wood. In this week’s show, I demonstrate shooting the ends of boards with a shooting board, including mitered edges using a donkey’s ear shooting board. Then I take an old Stanley plane through the restoration process to show how easily it can be done.

If you aren’t a subscriber to Mastering Woodworking (or even if you are!), all the techniques I discuss in the show—including how to build the shooting boards for yourself—are laid out in my book, Choosing and Using Handplanes, which is available from Amazon. If you are new to using handplanes, I think you’ll find it instructive and helpful.

Well, I would, but it’s copyrighted content and I don’t have access to it.
