Hand Planes in the Modern Shop

Kerry Pierce

Plane users, craftsmen who would like to become plane users, and plane collectors all will find a wealth of how-to information, backed with more than 500 images in this definitive guide to hand planes.

The use of hand planes results in a quieter, cleaner wood shop, and matches the efficiencies of power tools for many of the processes involved in making wood furniture. In addition to covering nearly ten types of planes, this book also divulges some shop secrets to making your own plane, restoring antique planes, and troubleshooting your planes.
