Jay Kepley: You are a fantastic teacher. I hope one day to visit for a class.

Dunstan Forsythe: How do you deal with wood that is really barky meaning the direction of the grain is going both ways very tightly together such as the case of guawngo a hard wood in Jamaica?

daniel tul: 40 years ago, this Army-brat teenager got his license to operate the power tools in the base hobby shop. I still have an image of the behemoth thickness planer producing flat and parallel machined surfaces, which is not necessarily so, as i've learned in recently picking up hand tools and y/t Rob Cosman.
I love how it teaches, by hand and sound. Troubleshooting my cheap planes are frustrating but occasionally rewarding. ( There ought to be a 123 checklist for correcting divots, like a golf-swing ;)

Jesse Taylor: That's a beautiful piece of pine. Thanks for the video. Super instructive. Subscribed!

Avaneesh Singh: Hi Rob,
I have a question (and perhaps a very stupid one)... What good is an electric hand plane you get in the market for such a job?

And thank you for your brilliant videos. There's a ton I get to learn from your shows.

Slant Six: These videos are fantastic! Thank you for posting.

1978ajax: HI Rob
I want to ask you why you bother to remove the shavings after every stroke - I know many people do this, but I've never seen the reason for it. I just remove shavings when they get in my way or when I can no longer see what I'm doing. Have I been missing something all these years? Thanks.

Gary McCoy: Very nice, thanks

jeremy s: the art of pickleing around...i hear you say timesaver! LMAO

Terry Sutton: Love these videos. Planing straight and square is proving difficult for a beginner. Great to watch all the little tips in your process. Would love more wood processing videos like these. Thanks for producing it!

Harry Randles: great video rob thanks for the information in this video and all your video just a thought do you do this to all your planes or just 6and 7
many thanks

GardnersGrendel: Hello. I have seen others approach wide boards by running the plane diagonally from corner to corner alternating diagonals after each series. This makes sense to me as a way to make sure your board is maintaining one plane both lengthwise and across the width. Is there a reason you run lengthwise the whole time? I understand that this is partly address by the way you are skewing your plane so that it is referencing a larger area, but it seems like with all your cuts aligned in one direction you are inviting inconsistencies perpendicular to those cuts. I am probably overthinking this, but curious none the less. Thanks for these videos.

Jake Carter: what brand hand plane do use?

Smashpunk7: You have a son-in-law? Dude, how old are you? You look like you're maybe late thirties!!

Luke Chung: hi Rob just wondering what stones you used for sharpening? i cant quite make out what you said

Daniel Jackson: Rob, I am brand BRAND new to wood working.  I am wanting to get better using a plane like yours.  I have a question.  How do you know for absolute sure the blade is sharp enough?  When is it time to stop sharpening and time to start working?  Thanks for answering if you have time.Daniel

Chem Cody: I'm learning a ton Rob! Thanks!

Gary Thomson Joinery: Thank you Rob 😊

Hersh Lester: Rob, want to thank you for all your work with the videos.  I always learn from your work.  I have a question about the Homerite liquid you were using on your diamond stones.  Where do you find it and can you supply a link?  Thanks again.

Steve Pilgrim: Recently retired & waiting on lots of tools (which are inbound) to start some woodworking. Can't wait to learn and try these methods to build some saw horses, then a bench and then a tool chest. Thanks for sharing your know-how.

mandjdn S: Wonderful:)
clubOrange: I don't know, I think Bethany's performance value was still below the other three.  I definitely give her most improved.  But it's not necessarily people voting against Derek, because I thought their partnership was very focused on Bethany (which was smart of him).
Amber Jayne: This is beautiful! Love it :-)
Ben Gamble: I don't have WiiMod and I'm not sure how to get it onto homebrew.
Fred Fred: I have a gold one
Rock Star: Hard to tell the difference, was recorded at 1080p... instead of 4k ... -_-'' 4k cameras aren't much.
