Weekend with Wood


150 years ago, hand planes would have been commonplace in all wood shops around the world. There were planes for flattening, smoothing, shaping and joinery cutting. With so many planes how is a woodworker to know what to use? Vic will guide you through the myriad of planes available to modern woodworkers and show you how to use many of them. He will also show you how hand planes can save you time and money in your shop as well as a whole host of tips and tricks that will help you succeed with tools without cords.


Of all the important, fundamental skills required to work wood, perhaps the most overlooked are solid marking and measuring skills.  In this class, Vic will teach you the tricks he’s learned over the years including working without numbers, and pencil and marking-knife techniques. He’ll also go over his essential marking and measuring tool list, take you through the various types of tools available to you and explain how to use them most effectively.
