- Super DVD Review by Warren
I purchased Tod's Ogee DVD first, and came here to get the background info, and learn some more.
This is a great DVD chock full of plane theory and takes the fear out of doing it your self - the ultimate goal of any craft.
Even if you never intend to build a plane, the background info explores the history and has much useful info for both the collector and the craftsman.
Especially useful was the visualization of the hardening and tempering process, the nemesis of most, and the later sharpening.
Great job and easy watching/listening....

- Classic Plane Making Hollows & Rounds Review by Mick
For years I have fiddled about making the odd plane and more often other tools and jigs I could not find (or afford), the DVD showed just how simple it can be to make planes for yourself. I am a carpenter and joiner of over 50 years experience and still working and am impressed with Mr Herries presentation and have picked up an awful lot in watching the DVD twice and have made his jigs, ready to start on hollows and rounds, first to match up the odd planes I have owned for years either the hollow or round but rarely a pair.
