Plane Talk: Restoring & Tuning Hand Planes

Course Overview

n an age of power tools, the hand plane gets short shrift. The hand plane is a more efficient tool than a sander or power planer in many applications and takes less time to set up and use when properly tuned. Students can bring their old (or new) hand planes to class and learn to sharpen, tune and plane properly. Students will also learn how to 'true' an edge for gluing, remove twist from a board, plane a board to thickness, plane end grain, grind and hone blades for different planing operations and try a series of other useful planes supplied by the instructor.
