Book for making handplanes?

Recommended Posts

I know you asked for a book, but...

 

There are a couple of videos on the Lie-Nielsen website. They are on my list to buy.

That book (David Finck's) is fantastic. I made a plane last year by following his step by step descriptions. That's definitely the one to read.

Thanks. Does he discuss making the irons? I noticed on his website that he has an arrangement with Ron hock if one would like to purchase them.

I can't remember - I just bought one from David's website (came with a chip breaker). I'm pretty sure I remember a detailed section on making your own.

I read so much that things get intermingled in my head.

For that style of plane, I think David's book is the best.  I've made a couple planes like this and love the planes.  David also has companion DVDs that go into a lot of detail, that is in the book.  The book and DVDs work well together.

If you buy the DVD and the book at the same time, he will sign the book. The book is a compliment to the DVD and the other way around too. Sometimes you need to see something to understand while reading in detail has value too. I bought the set and it is a very big thumbs up on the pair if you are interested in making a wooden plane.
