I hate cutting bevels on my table saw. No matter what I do I get significant burning that has to be cleaned up, setting the blade and resetting to square adds time, and it can be very unsafe if not done properly. When I have limited bevel work to be done, I turn to my hand planes. This is the topic of my first hand tool tip episode.

The ads on are getting a little crazy. I had more than three pop up during the video plus the longer one right at the beginning.

Good video!
