Bench side instruction on dimensioning lumber from rough to smooth. Rob teaches how to get a great workout and a flat board to boot! While you may or may not wish to dimension all your lumber by hand, knowing how is a valuable skill for when power tools are not an option. Rob walks you through the importance of getting the first face flat so the reference face will be as accurate as needed. Using a collection of hand planes and demonstrating how to sharpen the less common ones, Rob takes a piece of rough Mahogany through the paces of becoming straight, flat and true on all six surfaces. Sweat guaranteed!
