Inventory prep by
hand would possibly sound like an amazing exercise (and it may be if
there’s quite a lot of it), however it isn’t as onerous as you would possibly assume
– significantly when you have solely a few boards to take
from tough to prepared. On this longish video excerpt from
a Hand-crafted Bookcase,” Christopher Schwarz exhibits you
how he makes use of winding sticks and handplanes (trace: a
jack does many of the heavy work) to flatten a plank of wooden
to create a “true face” then a “true edge” – and some
planing tips that will help you get there shortly.
After establishing these, he talks about other ways
to mark the ultimate width, then exhibits you ways he rips a board
overhand with a panel noticed (together with a trick for
maintaining your cuts straight) earlier than marking out
and planing the board to the ultimate desired thickness.
And all fairly shortly. (Yeah, I do know this video is 20
minutes lengthy…however he needed to cease and speak so much. Usually,
the work proven would take possibly 5-7 minutes.)
Oh…and Chris does personal multiple shirt – however you may not
know that from watching our movies (we at all times ask him to put on
his cheerful purple one).
