Looks like you’ve got enough there to make a good start. Those tools don’t have to plug in to build beautiful things. By the way, welcome to Lumberjocks. If you can’t learn or share something here, it can’t be done. Have fun.

Hi Charles,

You have a nice collection of hand tools. This is a time honored method of woodworking and I, for one, wish my hand skills were better. But you have a good start with these tools and I am looking forward to seeing some of your projects.

Thanks for the shop tour. I really appreciate it.

There are some very nice projects that come out of small workshops with just a min. of tools. When I was in shop class in highschool back in the 50’s, I was taught how to set and sharpen the teeth on a hand saw. I don’t think that is done much now days. We had to make a shoe shine box with finger joints with nothing but hand tools.

A purist. I like that, I learned with guys who did not need electricity and I remember them being content with their hand tools and you should see the products they put out. Sadly they are mostly all gone now but its nice to see the craft in its purest form still carries on.

You have an amazing collection of hand planes. You ever think about building a nice rack for them?
