Handplane Essentials - Woodworking
by Christopher Schwarz

This product is no longer available.

As editor of Popular Woodworking and Woodworking Magazine and a regular contributor to Fine Tool Journal, Schwarz uses, tests, and writes about planes on a regular basis. This large volume compiles over ten years of his writings into one reference, covering everything you need to know to choose handplanes and effectively use them.

Packed with techniques and tips, it lays out in full detail Schwarz' approach to flattening, smoothing, edging and jointing, and devotes an entire chapter to the topic of sharpening planes and scrapers. Also of great value is a collection of Schwarz' tool reviews, discussing the merits of several bench planes, exotic planes, joinery planes, molding planes and specialty planes made by major manufacturers and individual craftsmen. Both a comprehensive how-to guide for woodworkers and an invaluable reference for tool collectors, it includes hundreds of photographs in rich sepia-tone effects.

Clothbound hardcover, 8-1/2" x 11", 312 pages, 2009, printed in the US. An engaging and informative compilation.
