Block Plane Tips: How to Use It, When to Use It, and Why it's Awesome!

The Block Plane is probably the handiest woodworking Plane in the workshop, it is capable of both big and small jobs and its size makes it an essential all-time workbench tool; Block Planes come in 2 basic models, inexpensive, lighter weight for more transportable carrying by carpenters, on on-site workers, OR there are the much more robust and heavier block planes that boast more controls for fine-tuning of the blade and heavier frames for smoother more sustained use; Block Planes can do quick work of smoothing saw, jointer and planer marks, trim down thicker wooden parts and make joinery easier by allowing small amounts of wood to be shared off and all this at in a somewhat healthier atmosphere because planes don’t create wood dust that can be inhaled, but more often create heavier shavings and chips’ Block Planes and a true woodworkers go-to tool.

    Colin, you make it look so easy. I’m having a hard time mastering the hand plane, either too deep of a cut or not enough. Guess thats the difference between a pro like yourself and a wood butcher like me.

    If I am looking into getting my first block plane what size should I consider? Mostly for Rounding over edges and other small jobs



  5. Rusty Guy on December 24, 2022 at 1:35 am

    What about adding a few wipes of wax or light oil on a rag to the bottom of the plane so it glides smoothly on the surface of the wood.

    solid tips…every one

    Terrific video Colin! Happy Holidays to you & your family! 👍👍🌲🌲



  12. Ed Roberts on December 24, 2022 at 1:52 am

    My old block plane doesn’t have a depth knob. I have to tap it forward. Takes forever to adjust. Not recommended. Get one with a depth knob.

    Fantastic tips, Colin! Thanks a bunch!!! 😊
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊
    Merry Christmas and happy new year!



  14. David Reed on December 24, 2022 at 1:56 am

    I’m starting to get tools to start woodworking. This is very helpful. How do you tell if a used block plane is a good one or just a cheap one?



  15. Nick Ward on December 24, 2022 at 1:57 am

    There is no link for the German block plane

    Nice video just in time because yesterday i bought my first block plane. I am from Europe and this type of plane is not very popular there where i live but i picked up nice vintage one.

    And it cuts better at an angle because…………. and this doesn’t work on regular knives because…………



  19. JoeC on December 24, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Oh, he says, is THAT how you set the blade depth, after decades of guesstimating. Thank you Colin!



  20. Anthony Audain on December 24, 2022 at 2:06 am

    You always come up with great ideas very interesting



  21. Thom spillane on December 24, 2022 at 2:10 am

    I must confess I’m a block plane addicted, I believe I have 5 or 6 block planes each a little different for specific tasks. Take Care Colin and to the wood work web family.
    Merry Christmas.



  22. Bill Edgar on December 24, 2022 at 2:11 am

    Thanks Colin from Bill inNova Scotia. I always enjoy your entertaining and informative tips. 👍



  23. Ninja Master on December 24, 2022 at 2:12 am

    I always struggled with manual planes. I only plane for installation purposes, like door slabs. So I use electric ones.

    Thanks for the lesson.



  24. Alex K. on December 24, 2022 at 2:12 am

    Great video. Do you camber your block plane blade? I just got my LN block plane and getting it setup



  25. hisgreatness2 on December 24, 2022 at 2:13 am

    I remember back in the 80s I was in 5th grade, how Colin was demonstrating planing a bit angled so the blade bites a bit better, was exactly how we were taught at school how to plane.



  26. michelle Gatz on December 24, 2022 at 2:14 am
