Excellent collection of hand tools Derek.

Wayne, don't be drooling on those planes. You know how much work it takes to get the rust off of them…

Derek,

You have a nice shop and a wonderful collection of hand tools. Use of hand tools is something of a lost art among a large portion of this community. It is refreshing to see someone who prefers using hand tools with which to work wood. Very commendable.

Thanks for the post.

Many thanks for all the very kind comments.

In recent months I have begun rebuilding the workshop - first time in 12 years. The latest cabinet to go up is dedicated to spokeshaves, plough planes and braces.



Dovetailed carcass in Pine, dressed up with Jarrah doors and fittings. Internals are sliding dovetails and stopped dados. Everything cut by hand.

Thanks for all the kind words. My woodshop is really pretty ordinary, especially compared with some who spend time and the effort to create a show place. Mine is not a show place. It is a woodshop where I have created shop furniture to store tools and a work place to build furniture and tools. I do envy those with pretty shops, and I have had some fun creating arrangements. They are functional, but also arty.

Here are a few tool arrangements. Who said it couldn't be fun? :)

Some squares …



Combination squares …



Marking gauges …



And chisels (Blue Spruce) ...



I am in the process of creating a series of more recent pictures of my shop, and will post a link when it is done.

Regards from Perth
