Foundation Course 2012 - Week 2

The second week of the Foundation Course is a slightly modified version of Hand Tool Heaven. We added an initial segment on dimensioning boards. We converted a bunch of jack planes into fore planes by putting a heavy camber on the blades. Jim also has a couple of wooden fore planes that allowed the students to do comparisions. Then into a flurry of making straight edges, winding sticks and squares.
