« Part 1: Hand plane basics part 1 Part 2 of Hand plane basics series no next part

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeI7Jn2Bj_U

In this video I finish going over how to plane down board faces and edges If you have not seen the first part of this video you should really watch it. I know that most people have already learned how to use hand planes but people learn at all stages in woodworking even the most advanced woodworker in the world everybody has their opinions on who that is but every person you name still learns stuff no one is self made. If you want to learn how to tune up a block plane then visit www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com and watch episode 6 tuning up a block plane.

just kidding…..
I have some sugestions for you:
1. The bench & vise you are using are for Metalworking, no suitable for woodworking & Handplaning. A woodworking workbench would be much better.
2. Your handplanes need tunning. The jointer is jumping!
3. A construction stud (2×4) is a bad wood to practice handplaning.

I have to find some money to get a good woodworking vise and once I am done working on my smoother then I will tune them up. The wood im using is actually a 2×8 that I have planed down soooo much because I have filmed this same video 15 times so I got a lot of footage that was never seen by anyone thanks for commenting

Have you thought about not using your vice at all when planning? Just screw or clamp a strip of wood across the end of your bench. This will also lower your arms and help you get your weight over the plane.

Kosta, I’m impressed by your knowledge being so young! I discovered woodworking 1 year ago at 40yo and I realize youngs like you have so much advance on me! Congrats and please release your 3rd episode soon!

Son, get yourself some safety glasses.
I’m glad you left the gang type behavior.
Nice video
