Continuing along with the discussion on block planes, today's episode is an overview of some of the features I consider important in a block plane. Whether it's the overall size of the body, the angle of the bed or something as simple as the feel of the front knob. Hopefully the things we talk about today will help to answer any of your questions, and if not, maybe they'll raise some we can address on a later episode.

Matt's Basement Workshop

Matt's Basement Workshop, hosted by Matt Vanderlist, can be found at and is the first and longest running woodworking podcast. Since 2006, the show's primary focus is on sharing experiences and educating woodworkers, with an emphasis on the small shop/home woodworker. Tool reviews, hand tool and power tool education, project builds and answering audience questions. The audience interaction is what makes it fun, online and in person. If woodworking is your passion...stop by and say "hi!"
