Shop Update LIVE 4/6/17: Edge Planing
Get the Edge “Square-ish” Then Feel Your Way Flat
The focus of this Live session is edge planing, specifically getting square edges. The original question comes from Chuck who will be making tapered octagonal legs and wants to get the 4 sided taper first. Basically you lay out the taper and plane to your lines. I like pencil lines over knife lines but either method will work. I do all the heavy lifting with the Fore plane and get almost right on my lines, then flatten and refine the taper with my jointer plane. But a Jack plane would work just as well.
3 Tips to a Square Edge
There is only so much I can cover and still take questions in these live broadcasts, so in an effort to cover some more edge squaring tips, I took a live session on this very topic from my Hand Tool School Apprenticeship and edited it a bit and released the video as a stand alone product that can be purchased over on the school site (or by clicking the image)
