Stock prep by hand might sound like a great workout (and it can be if there's a lot of it), but it isn't as hard as you might think - particularly if you have only a couple of boards to take from rough to ready.
In this longish video excerpt from 'Build a Hand-crafted Bookcase,' Christopher Schwarz shows you how he uses winding sticks and handplanes (hint: a jack does most of the heavy work) to flatten a plank of wood to create a 'true face' then a 'true edge' - and a few planing tricks to help you get there quickly.
After establishing those, he talks about different ways to mark the final width, then shows you how he rips a board overhand with a panel saw (along with a trick for keeping your cuts straight) before marking out and planing the board to the final desired thickness.
And all pretty quickly.(Yeah, I know this video is 20 minutes long…but he had to stop and talk a lot.Typically, the work shown would take maybe 5-7 minutes.) Oh…and Chris does own more than one shirt - but you might not know that from watching our videos (we always ask him to wear his cheerful red one).
