I’ve decided to start a new thread to announce my collection of miniature tools and the tool board / box and work bench I built to display them. I’m also working on a video that will hopefully show more detail. Ralph

Looks good, but you might want to close up the mouth on that plane a bit, those are awefully thick shavings!

Did you use the mini tools to build the mini bench? Those planes look cool.

That is amazing, Ralph. Your hand in the video finally gives it a bit of scale reference. It seems a good big larger than the common 1/12 scale. Maybe 1/6 or 1/8?

I was browsing the Lee Valley & Veritas Tool Catalog at home and I noticed that Veritas makes a lot of miniature planes that would make a great addition to this collection imo. Their detail rabbet and palm planes are pretty small too although a little pricier than the miniatures.

By the way, what’s on the other door? I can’t watch the video with my slow connection :(

Thanks Brandon. Sometimes a guy just needs a little help. And Thanks guys. I like to use a 1/4 scale for most of the stuff I do. I’ve also tried a 1/5 scale. I appreciate your thoughts Charles and Joel. Ralph

Art, if you upload the photo from your computer, the site will resize it to fit in the space. But if you link to another photo online, it will often only show part of the image because it is too big for the space. Just one of the quirks of the site, I guess.

Wonderful miniature tool collection, and I have trouble with regular handtools. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Charles. I appreciate your insight and experience as I visited your web site. You have built a beautiful shop and exceptional skill sets. I can only encourage you to throw yourself wholeheartedly into your passion before the years to come reduce your strength, vision, commitment and other elements that you have honed toward your most desired end.
