Just thought I’d pop in and see how many people had a chance to see the Tool and Shops issue of Fine Woodworking for the winter issue 08/09 #202. On the back page is a miniature of a tool box William Robertson made. I have to say that this piece is absolutely amazing. I am more then impressed by this piece. Everything in the tool box is a functional tool too. My jaw is on the floor.

Love the exploded views. That takes real patience.

Hand cut dovetails are tough enough when I can see them.

I used to build and paint figures, Military mostly. Most were 90mm -120mm some as big as 1/8 scale.

Still have them don’t work on them much anymore. But to have something in that scale that actually works…..
