These are some hand tools I made. There is a plane, bevel gauges, square, marking gauge and a dead blow hammer. All of them are made from purple heart and brass. The hammer is oak and purple heart.

Reallly nice. Purple heart is really pretty but oh so hard. They should last forever and look good doing it.

All the blades are out of small bench planes or are some that I ground down out of old irons

That’s a great set! Did you have plans for these tools or use models of tools that you already had?

I think the purple heart is the perfect wood for this kind of tool. Beautiful work.

Nicely done. I like that big white oak stripe in the hammer… very creative.
