Planing boards smooth by hand has got to be one of the most satisfying tasks in woodworking. Every aspect is a feast for the senses. The aroma of freshly cut wood, the feel of woodgrain yielding, the sound of each pass, the sight of those beautiful curls. OK, maybe it's just me. Still, you're going to need to try it for yourself and there's no better way to begin than by building your own hand plane. For some ideas on how to approach the challenge, see here:
