Completely agree with both replies above! You ask if hand planes are worth getting into… My response is to ask how you can decently fit two pieces of wood together with out using a hand plane? Jointing edges for glue up, shooting a square edge, trimming slightly proud pins or tails… And then for leveling and finishing… How can you do woodwork without hand planes? Worth getting into? Absolutely! But you don’t need to break the bank to get started… Lie Nielsen’s are fine tools, but old Stanley’s are quite good also…
