about to jump down in the shop and start my 4th practice set of dovetails. I’ll probably get good enough come my 98th or 99th attempt :) while having breakfast and coffee, i seem to always be cruising through the internet for wood working articles. i came across a wood ID poster i will probably eventually buy at woodposter

that got me to thinking. do they make a poster for the entire line of planes from Stanley somewhere? a painting of 16th century wood shop tools? everyone who knows me in person knows i’m really getting into wood working in the last year, and that i can not get enough. it would be nice to have some antique or renaissance framed wood working pictures to hang either in the shop or hallway. even my little avatar icon picture would be pretty neat to have on a wall somewhere in the house. even that ‘super duper hand tool chest’ that everyone dreams about (you know the one i’m talking about) would be nice to have in a frame poster.

Some of the older diagram pages from books like Moxon, Felibien, Roubo, are kind of cool. I’m sure you could find a poster or something out there. often has discussion of some of the old woodworking pictures.

There is a poster of the Studley tool chest out there too. Not sure where to get it, but here’s a video on the chest. Don’t know about a whole Stanley line up though.

well.. i contacted Stanley corporate, just to see if they have images from the day of Stanley Works and Stanley Rule and Level company. i’m curious how they will reply, if at all. i’m really surprised they do not have a collage of chisels, planes, etc for posters or such, readily available.
