Hand Plane Essentials - Winter 2012

Hand Plane Essentials - this class also really benefited from the expansion of bench tools and teaching tools, each student was able to fully engage with with a wide array of planes and really experience the difference using the right tool for the job makes.

We're also starting to lean towards using a #3 as a general purpose smoother. It's much more able to clean up those small areas in the middle of a board. We'll be bringing them into use over the next couple of months.
