In a friendly and conversational style, master woodworker Jim Kingshott welcomes you into his small, tool-filled workshop for lessons on the techniques and traditions of of the bench plane. He shows you everything you need to know about setting up, tuning, maintaining, and using bench planes-from jack planes and smooth planes to the finest Norris-style and popular Stanley-Bailey pattern planes. In the process, Jim passes along many secrets that have been handed down to him, while freely sharing his own valuable insights obtained during 50 years at the workbench.
Jim Kingshott has made furniture for British royalty, and for many years was a master of apprentice cabinetmakers for the Royal Air Force.
