New Book on Handplanes Released

My new book, Choosing and Using Handplanes, has just been released.  Intended for the beginning and newer handplane user, its 90 pages include nearly 100 color illustrations.  In this book, you will learn:
  • The types of handplanes, names and functions
  • The first planes you should get
  • How to set up and adjust your planes
  • How to sharpen your plane blades
  • The kinds of sharpening stones
  • The different bevels you’ll want on your blades
  • How to hold your work for planing
  • The body positions that work best
  • How to determine the direction to plane boards
  • How to plane cupped, bowed, and twisted boards
  • How to plane end grain
  • How to buy and restore old planes
  • How to store and care for your planes
  • Sources of new and used handplanes
  • How to solve handplane problems
Choosing and Using Handplanes is now available from Amazon and CreateSpace.

If you are hankering to learn how to use handplanes, I think you'll find this a useful guide.
