The success of every woodworking project depends upon properly preparing the wood – not once, but several times. Before you cut your first joint, you must joint and plane the lumber to make it flat and true. And before you can apply a finish, the surface must be scraped ad sanded. Nick explores all the major surfacing tools – jointer, planer, sanders, scrapers, hand planes, rasps, and files – sharing tips and secrets to get professional results. Four ingenious project plans show how to make your own surfacing tools: a Scraper Plane, Thickness Sander, Disc and Drum Sander, and Sandpaper Dispenser. 128 pages, over 250 illustrations and photos in PDF format.
