Choosing, Refurbishing & Using Moulding Planes with Bill Anderson

//Choosing, Refurbishing & Using Moulding Planes with Bill Anderson


I’m excited to announce the latest DVD that I’m releasing with Popular Woodworking Magazine next week called “Choosing, Refurbishing & Using Moulding Planes with Bill Anderson“. Roy Underhill kindly invited us to film it in his Woodwright’s School! You can learn more about the video or buy it here. Here’s the cover:


And you can find all the free moulding plane (or molding plane) resources right here. These resources are a free gift to woodworkers, even if you don’t purchase the DVD! Here’s the back cover:


My friend Bill had invited me to sit in on one of his classes, and afterward I said, “Bill, this class is amazing! We’ve got to turn it into a video so everyone has access to this priceless information!”


The class covered everything from what to look for at flea markets or tool swaps…


…to types of moulding planes, to refurbishing, to sharpening, and to using moulding planes. The cherry on top was learning how to draw Ogee and Ovolo profiles using basic geometry, then cutting moldings with hollows & rounds.


Here are some photographs that I took during the video shoots (yes, I shot so much footage that it took two trips!):
