Edging veneers for gap free joints can be a challenge and heavy metal planes can be cumbersome. A shop made wooden plane can make this task a joy and give great satisfaction knowing you made the tool yourself.
In this weekend class Adrian will demonstrate how to make a wooden shooting plane and a smoothing plane that can be used for a number of tasks. Each student will machine their own wood to create two planes as well as tune up Hock Tools plane irons. Once completed, Adrian will help each student fine tune their planes for optimal performance as well as demonstrate how to use them to edge veneer with flawless results. Students will then have an opportunity to put their new planes to use.
