Lee Valley Tools puts on lots of different class. A couple of months ago I signed up for the Hand Plane class put on by Doug Haslam (I have taken all of the classes he puts on there and hope he comes up with more). I had my doubts that the end product would be any good but at a minimum I would learn more about how hand planes work.

While I’m not overly thrilled with how it looks, it works better than my Grotz plane (I have since upgraded to Veritas Planes.). If you use hand planes I would highly recommend making one.
