Gallery Goodness, 28th July 2017

It’s a day of heightened industry in the workshop. Paul has a class here, currently in its fourth day, and the air resounds with the various thuds, clangs, bangs and thumps that accompany hand tool woodworkers in full flow. But it’s not just here that folks are ripping and shaping, witness the preponderance of pieces photographed for your enjoyment over the course of this past month!

I started making wood planes last winter out of white birch from my own land. White oak and butter nut for knobs and totes. I love the way they work. the last one, inspired by Paul’s blog about the idea, from parts of a broken #5 Bailey that came with my bedrock 607 bought on craigslist. I was going to make knew tote and knob but couldn’t bear to separate those parts that had been one plane for more than 110 years. I liked the look of Paul’s design better than mine but wanted to use the knob. I love my wood planes, so light and so much less friction.
