Repeat the process, except this time set the saw blade at 45° and bevel across the ends of the boards. Assemble these pieces into a square. If your measuring and cutting were accurate, your squares should actually be square. For future reference, miter usually means cutting an angle across the face (broad side) of a piece, and bevel means shaving or cutting along an edge or end of a board.

The blade on a surface-forming rasp can’t be adjusted, but interchangeable blades are available for fine and rough work. Surfaceforming rasp blades have a series of holes stamped in the metal, so shavings seldom become clogged in the tool’s blade. If you plan on planing many large workpieces, consider purchasing a power planer. A power planer does the job more quickly than a hand plane and with equally fine results. Use a block plane for common jobs, like trimming end grain, planing the edges of particleboard and plywood, and trimming laminates.

This random-orbit sander is used in general applications that require medium to heavy sanding. The orbital motion combines a circular pattern with side-to-side motion. Unlike disc sanders, random orbit sanders leave no circular markings, and there’s no need to follow the grain of the wood. Sanding discs are available with hook-and-loop fasteners or pressure-sensitive adhesive. Sponge applicators and accessories are also available for buffing. indd 56 (Text) (Ray) (Fogra 39)Job:04-30427 Title:MBI-HomeSkills Carpentry #175 Dtp:225 Page:56 4/10/13 4:27 PM 4/10/13 4:24 PM a B c D Finish sanders are designed for jobs that require medium- to light-duty sanding to achieve a fine finish.
