Of all the hand tools used in the modern shop, planes exert a special fascination. Though quite simple, planes are enormously versatile and practical when skillfully used. The articles in this book, collected from Fine Woodworking, illustrate a host of topics, including basic plane operation, how to choose the right plane for the job, and specialty planes. Step-by-step instructions show how to build wooden planes - a popular project for hand tool fans - and how to correctly tune and sharpen, essential for proper plane operation.
