Mouldings In Practice was written by planemaker Matt Bickford for the advancing woodworker with the beginner in mind.
This book illustrates a necessary strategy for making any straight, predetermined moulding profiles with hollows & rounds, regardless of previous knowledge.
Included in the text is setting up the planes, maintaining them, and, most importantly, having a strategy to execute predictably.
Mouldings In Practice is a highly illustrated technical manual and modern-day justification for an 18th-century tool in your shop and in your hands.

This 7/16" Roman Ovolo Plane and Hard Arkansas slip stone set is intended for the woodworker that is interested in pursuing the use of wooden moulding planes but hasn't the self-perceived experience. This plane comes with the appropriately sized slip stone for future sharpening (leather pouch not included).
This set is also the subject of several blog posts. In those posts I have justified the configuration of the tool, covered the use of the tool, and posted videos relating to sharpening this specific tool.
This Quirked Grecian Ogee w/ Bevel, bedded at 50 degrees, may inspire you to replace all of the baseboard throughout your house and even add some in your garage and attic, or not. Either way, it's a fun plane with a classic profile.
