1500 square feet in my basement. Wood stove heat. Solar electric. I started collecting hand tools in the 60’s. Building a new tool wall to keep them all handy. Learning how to draw with Sketchup along the way.

What a beautiful shop. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many hand tools at one time in the same place. You have a great shop. Congratulations and welcome to Lumberjocks.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. The #51 / #52 shoot board and plane was one of those stories that you only hear about. I found the pieces in different boxes of junk at a used machinery dealer. I bought a saw and he threw in the “boxes of plane parts” for free! This was before the internet but I had seen a line drawing of one in a book. When I put it together it was only missing the hold down and alignment pin. I used electrolysis to remove the rust which did not harm the japanning. I keep a scrap in the hold down to prevent tearout. I found out years later it’$ value!
