Podcast #40: Three Hand Planes Every Shop Should Have

I asked associate editor Randy Maxey why hand planes are an important part of a modern woodworking shop? Here is what he told me:

It has changed the way I do woodworking. I really agree with a line I read once in an old, old issue of Woodsmith magazine. It said, ‘…no machine can come close to the quality of work a hand plane will do.’”
