How to Plane Wood Flat

Lesson Objectives

For those of you that do not have a workbench with a tail vice or other means of holding a board flat on a bench, I would recommend getting some Veritas Wonder Dogs/Pups. These things only require a 19mm (3/4″) hole to be drilled and you’re sorted.

The pups are for shallower workbenches whereas the dogs are made for thicker workbenches.
