Mike and I recorded a new video this morning for our “Setting Up Shop” video series, this time focused on the trying/jointer plane. Although I discuss the history of the terminology, I don’t really care which word you use. Instead, I show the two situations in which these planes shine: flattening board and jointing edges. In practice, these guys don’t get as much use as the fore plane. And that’s good because they’re hefty beasts to wield around.
