I have been hand
making jewellery in Melbourne, Australia for 40 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
