With hundreds of great woodworking sites on the web, it is difficult to know which ones are worth viewing whenever there is a new article. Most promote their published product or so overrun with advertising that it reminds me of going to a myspace page (mind you I haven’t gone to one in a few years so they may have improved?) Others that are personal blog attempts are often incomplete and difficult to follow. That said, I’ve appreciated the effort and expertise that Matthias Wandel offers on his blog, woodgears.ca. If you enjoy working with wood in a home shop, his suggestions and ideas are a welcome and easy read – very clear.
His recent post, Causes of planer snipe on small thickness planers, offered an excellent explanation as to the problem and offered a couple creative and simple solutions … something that is rather timely for me since I’ve been wanted to utilized some recycled lumber on a project (I don’t currently own a planer). His video is embedded below.
