I’d like to ask a question to those who use hand planes instead of a jointer or planer. I don’t want to hijack the other related thread about jointers versus hand planes. I am hoping over time to move to more and more hand tools as my skills improve.
So for those who hand plane boards to make them dead flat on both sides, how long would it take you to do a 6” X 6’ board? Let’s assume your planes are perfectly sharp and you know what you’re doing, and let’s also assume that the grain is relatively straight and not like my avatar.
