As I am starting to build a nice Woodworking Bench and just starting to love and get into hand tool woodworking I have a few on my wish list and am wanting to see whats out there.

A few things on my list.

1. a few metal hold fasts or other accessories / clamps that work with 3/4” bench dog holes.
2. Spoke Shave
3. Solid In Working Order and Sharp Plane Looking for 1,: a number 5 6 or 7.
4. Various Scrapers
5. Router Plane
6. Rabbit Plane

I’m willing to trade Lilac wood and box elder burl with flame wood.
I also have a good condition Stanley No. 45 Combination Plane (with multiple cutters)
Nova 4 jaw wood lathe chuck
One Way 4 jaw wood lathe Chuck

My first thoughts are you’re gonna need at least a 14-3 gauge extension cord no longer than 25 feet. Next on the list, is a 3×24” belt sander, then an orbit sander, and to top it off, an air compressor. If those don’t do it for you, a lot of elbow grease, and you’re off and running. Thank me later. ............ Jerry (in Tucson)

I’m confused by your post Jerry.

I have all those things you list. I have been power tool woodworking for years now. Getting into the hand tools and only looking and need the things on my list.

Thanks,

Ethan

Ethan,

You’ll get lots of opinions and its really difficult to give you one because the tools you need depend on the project.
I will speak based on the project at hand.

A #4 should probably be the first plane in your shop -but- my most used plane by far is my #6, so of the three you listed if you can only get one, I would get a 6. For the WB, I think this will be your best plane you can’t use anything less to flatten the top, IMO.

Spoke shave, router and rabbet planes are specialty tools that I wouldn’t necessarily be getting right off the bat unless you can find one really cheap. Also, I don’t see the need for them in this project.

I can’t envision a workbench without mortise and tenon joints. You will also need chisels (both bench and mortising) plus layout tools: a marking knife, square, bevel gauge, or a marking gauge. And a mallet or hammer.

You will also need a couple handsaws. If you’re doing it entirely by hand, you’ll need a rip and xcut panel saw, plus a backsaw for cutting tenons, etc.

A shoulder plane or rabbet block plane are extremely handy for tuning up tenons. A rasp can also be used.

Good luck. I recommend checking out some videos on basic hand tools. Google Paul Sellers & Chris Schwarz.

I’ve watched tons of videos and read multiple books. I have a number #4, #3, a self made scrub plane and 2 different block planes. I have chisels, a marking knife, a square, a marking guage, multiple self turned and made mallets, hammers as well as multiple saws. Hence the reason these are not on the list above.

I’m not only looking for items for my workbench but other project and I know that the things I will need for the other projects are on my todo list.

rwe2156 do you have a #6 for sale or trade?

Thanks.

Ethan,

I recently bought a few planes from Aidan1211 (his name is Robert), and he regularly has a bunch of handtools for sale. I know he buys up huge batches of old tools every now and again and tunes them up for sale. It may be worth a PM to see if he has anything you are looking for. I can tell you he gave me a great price and the tools were on my doorstep in a few days.

Good luck!

For holdfasts, look at the Gramercy ones from Tools for Working Wood They are reasonably priced and work extremely well.

I also strongly recommend watching a video by The English Woodworker entitled The Holdfast and the Batten It’s shows a really excellent way to get even more utility out of your holdfasts.

Hi Jerry,

I just now see the humor in your post! I apologize for that and thanks for giving me the hint.

I’m building a workbench for my son, about 1/3 the size of a full scale one. Enjoying the planning and limitless design and joinery options I have learned about in the past few weeks.
