I think you antipodeans got all the poisonous snakes and bugs to make up for that gorgeous wood.

For those that have not looked yet, the rest of the stuff that he has posted on his page is just as nice.

Nice looking stuff to say the least!
I love the look of the woods you have access to and we call exotics..the shooting board is just lovely.
Funny to have you point out the irony of using a jointer to make the Cooper’s plane on your website.
Really beautiful work and thanks for sharing.

My Lord Derek ! You’ve discovered the answer to power versus hand jointing..with that monster who would ever dream of needing an electrical jointer ? And it’s beautiful as well as quiet..Good on you and nice work !

As always, Derek’s knowledge, zeal and skills in the hand-tool world are tough to match. I called him a hand-tool enthusiast in one of my previous posts rather than an expert or master something because his style is always personal and approachable and you don’t find that distance with him as you would between you and an expert or a master. Well, he is a hand-tool expert, for the record.

As usual you have developed a masterpiece. I really enjoy seeing the tools that you post and admire their usefulness as well as their beauty. This type of quality cant be found on a commercial market. Kepp up the good work and keep posting your tools. Absolutely amazing.

For all those of you that have not yet viewed Dereks website I highly recommend it but must warn you it will make yo feel “giddy” languishing over the beauty of his hand made tools.

Many, many thanks for all the kind words.

Just to make sure that you either do not run out of reading material, or experience problems with insomnia, I will post separately on furniture making techniques and recent projects.
