I’ve got a few projects in mind for the winter especially as we get close to gift-giving season and I was wondering if anyone has any advice on getting started with hand planing.
My main motivation is lack of funds for a power planer and jointer setup and because I want to learn the manual way before sinking more money into machines (which is inevitiable).
One simple project I want to work on is the ever popular cutting board. Can I get adequate straight, parallel, and 90 degree dimensions using a hand plane if I take it slow?
The library down the street has The Handplane Book on the shelf so I’m off to grab it now.
