Ask any experienced woodworker about their most-used tool and there’s a good chance they’ll mention their wood block plane. This small but mighty tool is a true workhorse, and one of the most versatile tools you can own. On larger projects, it excels at beveling or chamfering edges, cleaning up joints, shaving down proud tenons or dovetails, and even cleaning up stray mill marks. For very small projects, it might be the only plane you need, functioning as a jointer, smoother, and shooting plane. You can even clamp it upside down in a vise to plane very small pieces — just push the wood across the plane blade.
This tool excels around the house any time you need to remove just a little bit of material. That door that sticks every summer? A light pass or two with a block plane makes for a perfect fit.
