How To Setup a Shoulder Plane

Hello and welcome to the first project in my Free Online Woodworking School. It's fantastic to have you here! In this short video, I will explain the structure of the course. These are also summarised in the points below.

Lesson Objectives

In this video, you will learn how to setup your shoulder plane. Specifically, avoiding the common pitfall that a lot of hand tool woodworkers fall into. This pitfall is a flaw with the overall design of the shoulder plane, but can be made worse by a user not understanding how to control it.
