Thanks for tips gentlemen. I will definitely be looking into those videos this evening. I am certain my wife thinks I’ve hit my head with my growing interest in hand tools.
Andrew, I think I am about a year behind. I just bought my first handplane yesterday. Although, I am not sure how good of purchase it was, it appears to be in almost new condition and it was only 15$. Ace Hardware 9 inch smoothing plane. I am anxious to give it a go.
