I have been hand making jewellery in Melbourne, Australia for 35 years, and I am also an enthusiastic collector and user of antique and old woodworking tools. A whole new dimension is gained when using tools I've made myself. Especially handplanes that I can use on my woodwork projects. This is the first handplane I made entirely by hand. That one, and some others can be seen by clicking here.
I've started making a few more planes and other tools, and will add them to that page as they progress and are finished.
