Very little has been documented about molding planes – how they are used and how they are made. Larry Williams demonstrates the traditional method of making a pair of hollows and rounds from a solid billet, including blade making, hardening and tempering. Hollows and rounds are used in combination to make complex moldings. This unique work is interesting both as a historical record of hand tool making, as well as a guide for those who wish to make their own molding planes for use.
