In my above video, Frank Klausz takes us into his new woodworking workshop and shows his amazing, and huge, carpenter’s molding plane that he made at the request of his local tool collector group in New Jersey, called the “The Craft”. Frank asked me to share their website link here.

Frank wanted to demonstrate this molding plane when I was filming a video tour of his new woodworking workshop.
