RWW 30: Thicknessing Stock the Old Fashioned Way
This episode is in response to a Twitter conversation about how to dress a board to proper thickness using only hand tools. Rick Waters at the Splintered Board Podcast tweeted that he wanted to know if there were any good sources on the web for how to do this. The web 2.0 community immediately responded with tips and advice. Since I was planning on presenting an episode on this topic eventually when I tackled the thick and wide vise chops for my Roubo, I bumped that task up in construction and filmed it specifically to address this line of conversation.
This episode is for you Rick!
Here is another later (and better produced) version of the hand plane milling process where I take a board and surface it on 6 sides (S6S) that may also be useful.
