Small planes are great for small jobs, not only in the workshop but also around the house. I’ve long kept a little guy in my tool bucket for adjusting sticky cabinet doors and flushing up trim around the house.

Lee Valley Tools has just released two little planes (under its new Utilitas brand) that should go on your Christmas list. These two planes are identical except for their soles. One has a flat sole. The other has a spoon-shaped sole, which makes it useful for hollowing out concave surfaces.
