Excellent two DVD set of disks by Bill Anderson that have all the information I needed to do as the title says: Choosing, Refurbishing & Using Moulding Planes.
I have a moderate amount of old wooden planes, all varieties – bench, fillister, panel raising, etc., and of course profile moulding. I’ve read several good books by the industry leaders, like Michael Dunbar’s Restoring, Tuning & Using Classic Woodworking Tools, and many others, even books on how to make a plane from scratch, and these DVDs are the first place I found answers to many of my questions concerning details. Details I couldn’t find anywhere else, like how to sharpen a profile on an iron – shown in close up, including information for the tools necessary to complete the process.
Two DVDs, with over two hours of video instructions dedicated to moulding planes alone. I highly recommend this set of instructional DVDs for any one who wants to create projects by using moulding planes, well worth the investment.

Hah, nice timing I was just asking about this. Now I have to decide between this DVD and Bickford’s book. Could do both too, I suppose.
You can buy the DVD set from Josh Farnsworth at his website too:

Tim,

I’ve heard it said that ”a picture is worth a thousand words”. Imagine how many words are in a video …...

Good point. Bickford has a video through Lie Nielsen too, but I think I’ll try this one.

Tim,
I didnt know of these other CDs, so I cant compare to this PopWood version. Check to see if all offer some sort if preview for a good decision.
