Thanks for all the great comments – seriously some of the funniest ones I’ve gotten since I started doing these book giveaways. The winner is always chosen at random, but some of you get extra points for effort. Congratulations to mbholden, the winner of this book giveaway. Stay tuned for more exciting book giveaways and if you’re interested in a copy of“Handplane Essentials, Revised & Expanded,” it is currently available at ShopWoodworking.com.
If you’re serious about woodworking, you know that you’ll likely continue to refine your craft until you wind up in an exquisitely detailed coffin you built yourself – there’s a lifetime’s worth of learning in this avocation. New tools land on the market. New techniques change the way you approach your work. You learn new tricks by talking to other woodworkers.
And that’s exactly the reason “Handplane Essentials, Revised & Expanded” by Christopher Schwarz exists. With this new edition, Chris has added 14 new articles and product reviews based on his evolving ideas about choosing, sharpening and using handplanes.
And here’s your chance to get your hands on a free copy: I have one copy of the book to give away! Simply post a comment and I’ll choose a lucky winner at random (winner will be announced on Monday 4/10). Good luck!
