Apprentice Diaries: Tom’s Tips for Resting a Plane

The Generation NEXT apprentices are learning new skills. Check out the latest from the jobsite!

TOH general contractor Tom Silva teaches Bailey that it’s best to rest a plane on its side when the tool is not in use. “You never know if there’s a screw or a nail, and any little piece of metal will break the edge,” Tommy says. “And then you’ll have to sharpen the plane.”

Learn more about what’s going on at our Newton House by watching the TOH project webcams. You can also access more behind-the-scenes footage of our apprentices by following them on Twitter and Instagram.
