This winter I have been making a few tools:
Here are the roubo style try square, marking knife made (from and old used up Stanley plane blade) and a dovetail saw guide. Thanks goes to David Barron, I found out about the guide on his you tube channel, be sure to check it out.
The chisels are just old run of the mill no names, the handles were turned from rosewood. The screw drivers are from Lee valley.
The screwdriver handles were made to resemble old tools like these.
After seeing this cabinet makers mallet at Lee valley I just had to make one.
Also made a small chisel hammer for detail chopping.
The saw collection started out with a piece of junk gent saw that I found at a flea market. The smallest dovetail saw is made from from that and is perfect for small dovetail joints. The regular dovetail saw was made from a Crown gent saw. The largest is another I should have passed up, it is a Jackson (Disston?) back saw. The saw plate was too pitted to save and was replaced, it is now however a joy to use.
Hope you enjoy looking.
