Re: High benches and low benches

watch my hips in this video.

They change an inch or two. What changes in the stroke is leaning forward and pushing through the end of the stroke.

I have no clue what people are doing when they drop their hips 8 inches, but they wouldn't be able to do it for two or three hours. This is easy planing wood. If much productivity is to be had, it's not to bear down further when less favorable wood is used, it's to set the plane to make the effort about the same as here.

If someone doesn't dimension wood by hand (and thus get much better at smoothing wood in the penultimate step, which leads to better smoothing), I can't really rely on pictures of what they're doing to understand why planes weren't designed with the handle set in low and upright 150 years ago...or even 75 years ago).

I am 5'9" and my bench top is between 34 and 35 inches.
