In the video, he’s got a set of Irwin Marples chisels, so those can probably be taken off the list. With the nice 4-1/2 you’re giving him to use as a smoother, that ACE #4 could easily be made into a scrub/jack plane, as well.

Agree that marking gauge and knife would be useful. His adjustable bevel is a cheap, plastic handled one, so a nice vintage rosewood handled one of those would be a good upgrade. I can provide one of those. He’s got to have some way of sharpening the chisels and plane, right? Without knowing how, it’s tough to know what additional sharpening setup would be good.
