Working metal into shop tools is an intriguing subject and one that I hope to pursue eventually. What better enjoyment can there be than to fabricate your own wood plane,or marking tool, or set of chisels ?

Just reading several articles on these very things has been enlightening and given me the desire to try it out

Usually articles in ShopNotes or Fineworking give resources and how-tos. For example in one article it tells you how
to temper the metal of a home-made plane blade with a propane torch. What tool steel is the best, places to buy tool steel , etc. Often its a combination of wood working and metal fabricating.
