- I'm Picky Review by Tom
When I want to know something I research it to death. Tons of articles and books and DVDs. Having decided to get into hand planes I did my thing. This is the absolute best thing available. Clear, complete, and concise.

- Excellent primer Review by Tom Moeller
This is an excellent first dvd to buy for both the novice and intermediate wood worker. It covers all the basics from plane description and choice to setup and use. I found it to be a spring board or foundation for more inquiry and education. The clear and concise information has dramatically improved my ability to acquire and use different planes.

- Don't know what you are getting Review by ko
Unlike a book. These dvd give no clue as to how good they are. I wish they would post index and samples of what is contained in the dvd. That way I would know if I wanted to buy it. Right now your buying on blind faith that it is worth the money.

- A Better Way For Sure Review by Michael
Before owning the DVD I always found myself laying aside my planes in frustration after trying to use them on projects, vowing to someday take the time to learn how to properly add their use to my arsenal of tools.Now I can say with confidence that the day has finally come where I feel like I'm headed in the right direction. I'm by no means an expert and may never be but I can honestly say that the information on this DVD has allowed me to increase my skills exponentially. From the first time I watched it I could feel the tumblers clicking in to place as the mystical secrets of hand planning were finally beginning to unlock themselves. I found the style of teaching easy to understand and absorb and have found myself referring back to it multiple times as a refresher.

- Handplane Basics Review by Kenneth Murrell
This is an excellent DVD. Of all the videos and demonstrations I have seen, as well at books on handplanes this is the best. All the information that one needs to set up and use bench planes is here in this DVD. One complaint. The DVD did arrive 'bent' due to poor packaging. However after bending it back it did play.
