    It’s a shame that they didn’t know to set the cap iron so that they could easily plane that wood.

    My understanding is that they weren’t to use double iron planes at Williamsburg because the curators determined that they weren’t common in the era that they were portraying.

    Planing the billet should’ve been easy with the boxwood inserted smoother that was shown. The toothing plane would’ve been for roughing surfaces.
