For the last several months, I've been writing and photographing a book on using handplanes in woodworking. Titled Choosing and Using Handplanes, it describes the various types of handplanes, how to set them up and sharpen them, ways to hold work for planing and planing technique itself. It also addresses caring for handplanes, buying and restoring old handplanes and how to diagnose and fix various problems encountered in planing. The book should be completed in November in a paperback edition that will be sold on Amazon.com as well as on my web site and in a Kindle edition to follow soon after that.
A photo of the book's cover is shown here. If you are new to handplaning, I think you will find this book a helpful resource for getting started.
