Hand Tool Injustice #1: What I don't want to admit about hand tools.

1761 days ago by douginaz | 10 comments »

Lets face it. Most of the people I deal with are primarily a power tool person or hand tool person. There is that rare breed that toggles between the two with little effort but I’m not one of um. I admit to being a power tool junkie. I just never saw the need for a huge selection of numbers of planes whose numbers escape my little mind. Naturally I do have a block plane, a rabbit plane and a scraper I picked up in Germany. I am in the middle of making a coffee grinder for my siste...

1768 days ago by threehands | 2 comments »

There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...
