To set the stage you might want to read Bearkatwood’s project post first.

I thought this would be a chance for several of us to Pay something forward. Ive got quite a few extra tools laying around and I would like to send a few his way. If you have an old chisel or tool sitting around or a tool you have made and would pay the postage to send it to him it would be appreciated.

You can post what you have to offer here so we dont double up on something, and after a week or so we will set a date to mail packages so they will all arrive about the same time. I know this young mans jaw will drop as he receives these gifts from LJ’s and maybe he will join LJ and recommend it to other young men interested in having a hobby in woodworking.

All the Best, Jefff

I think this sounds like a great thing for this young woodworker and would be very welcomed.

Let me look to see what I’ve got.

If someone wants to donate it might be a good idea to view the young man’s videos first. He doesn’t have much space to store things, as they have to be put away so the garage can be used. He did make a video showing what tools he already has, so could give an idea of what he could use or upgrades to existing tools.

I noticed that too Jay T. My line of thought was basic tools

1 a smoother
2 block plane
3 jack plane
4 4 good chisels
5 marking gauge
6 marking knife
7 sharpening stone
8 sharpening guide
9 spokeshave


Bearkat has done struck a barter for a sweet saw and he has quite a few basic tools in his chest so with that ,I was thinking of aquiring the above 8 items and he would be set. What are your thoughts ? Anything we need to Add ?

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.

Maybe Bearkat could get some insight on what he is using for sharpening or if he actually does sharpen at all. I was second guessing the 4 1/2 size plane last night and maybe going with a 3 or 5 to fit his age and the narrower blade being easier to sharpen. Ive got a great K3 and several good K 5’s I could swap out in place of the 4 1/2. Good idea on the scrub plane conversion.

Turtle, have you had a chance to contact bearkat to see if he has any insight about what this young man needs for sharpening or other tools?

And are we going each send things individually or all get to them to one person so that it comes as a single gift?
