Here at Rowden Atelier we have created a series of teaching DVDs showing you how to set up using all of the necessary hand tools and learning the essential woodworking techniques for furniture making. These DVDs feature some of the best craftspeople in the world showing you how to begin making furniture or other woodwork projects right in your own home.
The job going wrong? Noise, dust, aggravation? Machines are great but they put a distance between you and your materials, the wood. A hand plane sweetly cutting is the only way to get back in touch. This DVD shows you how to properly use a benchplane for accurate, easy and artistic furniture making.
We teach these principles at the Rowden Atelier Workshop, so you know it comes from 30 years experience as we take you through setting up the plane and improving its performance, understanding timber – why it moves and how to overcome it, how to finish to a true flat surface after machining, achieving “slightly hollow edge joints” that glue up with the invisible joint, and how to plane end grain without break out and get it dead flat.
We’re not affiliated with any manufacturer, so you can be confident our advice is impartial and unbiased, professional advice.
