These are some of the tools that use when building reproduction antigue furniture. They are very difficult to adjust, but a pleasure to use when I can. Plus they are really really quiet!

Captainblue, this is a nice shop that you have put together. You have a pretty nice collection of hand tools to play with. I have always had a great deal of admiration for those woodworkers who have taken the time and invested the effort into developing their hand skills. This looks like it would be an interesting shop in which to work.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed taking a look at your shop.

Blue, welcome to LJ! As a fellow handtool lover, I direct you to where the plane geeks assemble:

We’ve got some guys here that have forgotten more than I know about planes. Welcome again!

Welcome to Lumberjocks, Captain. I love your work bench and I think that it is great that you make antique reproduction furniture with hand tools. Congratulations. Your tools are wonderful.
