Custom Block Plane
Page 26: Figure 3
In preparing the online extras for the infill block plane, we discovered some errors and decided to make adjustments to the sizing of the Lever Cap “C”. The distance from the front (lower) edge of the lever cap to the shoulder is now 1 instead of 7/8. The distance from the shoulder to the top of the lever cap is now 1/2 instead of 5/8. The concave radius on the lever cap is now 5/8 instead of 9/16.

Readers’ Tips
Page 7: Illustration
Two of the arrows in the illustration are not pointing to the correct objects. The BASE arrow should point to the base piece of plywood, not to the hole. And the “HOLE FOR WALL HANGING” arrow should point to the hole, a little farther left than where it currently points.
