    Comments about Working With Handplanes :

    Great introduction to tuning, using, sharpening and making planes for woodworking. Provides not only practical advice, but more philosophical perspectives By Jim Krenov) on making and using planes and how to enjoy the art of their use while avoiding the temptation to lose sight of this by becoming a slave to sharpening and tuning needlessly. Balanced presentation of the technical, practical and artistic aspects of working with planes.
