Join well known woodworker and accomplished plane maker Tod Herrli for these great classes.
Molding planes are commonly used to treat table top edges, lipped draw fronts and even cabinet doors. This profile exposes the student to the basic concepts of side escapement plane making and the more advanced concepts of a fenced plane with depth stop and “spring angle”.
Tod recommends that students do some homework prior to class by studying the basic concepts taught in the video “Making Classic Planes” prior to this class. This video is available on the ALP webpage http://www.alpdvdsales.com/home or from Tod at firstname.lastname@example.org. To make it possible to complete the planes during class, some work will be done ahead of time. Our goal will be for all students to complete their planes during class.
One of the side benefits of these classes will be the opportunity to learn Tod’s sharpening technique. His technique will show you how to tune up your edge tools to a razor edge in minutes!
