I love seeing what others have hunted out in the wild and have gathered. Post pictures of your tool hoard for others to enjoy!

I want your chisel case, did you build it or buy it like that? I’d take it with the chisels too though! I like the way the gouges look like they fit into little shaped pockets on the side to protect the edges.

Hey Aidan, I have used most of the planes at least once or more. The chisels and gouges came in the box, what I did was restore both, clean and edge the tooling and clean and wax the box, which is walnut. Sometimes if you search long enough you find some very good tools out there. Now how about some of your tools, where are your pictures?

I’ll put some pictures up tomorrow when I have a few free minutes. I tend to have a lot of tools that need love since I deal in them but my users are nice. You’d see a lot more Millers Falls stuff than anything else though. Kinda a nerd for them and Union. I’ll drag out what I currently have in my shop for now the stuff in storage will have to wait for another day! You are totally right about being able to find good stuff in the wild sometimes the seller is a little crazy on price but the older tools really hold up well and survive. Thanks for sharing your woodies they are a very cool addition to a handtool or power tool shop and very misunderstood and unappreciated tool even though they take less time to set up and work flawlessly if set up right the first time.

Mine is kind of a modest collection to what some others here have.

A few more have been added since these pics were taken, including a really nice shooting plane made by a fellow LJer, Ripthorn. Most all of my hand tools have come via eBay and from other sellers. Actually most of the tools in my shop were purchased from eBay, CL and other sellers. Only a few I can think of were bought new from commercial sources. It’s always my hope that some good woodworking mojo comes from the preowned tools :)

Tool porn is a funny thing. ;)

I love how you have them displayed. You have a functional set. I’ve always found it better to pick up the older stuff it really is better in my opinion. Nice setup though. If my shop was that clean I’d be accused of not working! Haha

Most of my hand tools have been picked up from estate sales, CL, antique stores, etc and restored.

I’m glad I posted this it is really nice seeing all you guy’s collections. Some beautiful stuff! Keep it goin! For those of you guys waiting for my pictures I’m really trying to find the time to gather them up for some pictures but I haven’t had time I’m in the middle of a table build that has been somewhat of a pain in the—- you know the word I’m looking for! As soon as I have a free moment I’ll send out some pictures!
