Handplanes in the Woodshop DVD
If you're like many woodworkers, you own handplanes but never learned how to use them to their best advantage. In Handplanes in the Woodshop DVD, teacher and plane expert Mario Rodriguez shows the basics of using planes and how four basic planes - the jointer, the smooth plane, the shoulder plane and the block plane - can change the way you do woodworking.
In this 45 minute DVD, you'll see:
Mario Rodriguez is a contributing editor of Fine Woodworking magazine and teaches woodworking at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. He also offers workshops on a variety of subjects including plane use and plane building.
- How to tune and sharpen a plane

Every Fine Woodworking DVD workshop takes you right into an expert woodworker's shop. You'll see firsthand exactly how to do the work - the tools, the techniques and the subtle rhythms that make for skillful woodworking. You can pause the DVD to practice and you can replay each demonstration as often as you want. Much more than mere entertainment, these videos are private lessons in craftsmanship that you take in your own home, at your own pace. 45 minutes.
