New direction in life… new outlook on life… new projects to build… so why not some new tools?
In the end of all this, my hope is to be 100% hand tool. I still occasionally use a router table because I don’t have decent moulding planes or a full set of hollows and rounds yet….. yet.....
I was able to pull some strings and with a little begging to certain people that I know and hold in high regard (who will remain a secret) I was able to get my hands on some awesome wood body planes. They arrived yesterday and today was the first chance I had to unwrap them all and have a look….
9 complex moulding planes, one of them has 2 blades and makes it a ‘true’ moulding plane. These planes are dated to be early-mid 1800’s. The blades are in amazing shape they will not take very much work at all before I am using them.
Compass coffin and toothed scraping plane. I have been wanting a toothed scraping plane for a long time as from what I am researching, it is vital to the marquetry and veneer world that I am venturing into.
Handrail plane with adjustable fence, panel raising plane and a ‘kids jack’. The kids jack has a smaller handle and is the perfect size for my boy..
Last… I don’t know what they are called, but a small detail radius set, hollow, round and rabbet planes. From what I am led to believe, these are super rare.
And then all of them lined up..
I can only imagine how many panels that raised, or how many handrails that plane made…. I cant wait to start using them.
