Shop Tour - VIDEO

A couple years back, when I built my bench in Christopher Schwarz's class, he actually helped load the bench into the SUV, and he helped unload it, too. He was intrigued by my tiny shop and posted a video about it on his blog. You can check out that post here.

My shop has changed a little since then, so enjoy.
While you're here, check out the tools on my For Sale tab as I am trying to thin the herd.

Tools For Sale!

This is completely embarrassing.

I am not a collector.


Somehow, a collection has appeared out of thin air in my shop, and I need to get rid of some of these really great tools before I move to Spain in two weeks. For Pete's sake, I now have four #8 sized jointers! FOUR! No one needs four number 8 jointers, let alone three number 7's!

I seem to have had a fixation with Ohio Tools bench planes, as I have collected a lot over the last six months. These tools should be used. They are fantastic, and were made with amazing thick, tapered irons and massive chipbreakers that make them a joy to use.

Keep an eye on this blog. I have a new page, which only has items for sale on it.

Right now there are some great smoothing planes, and there soon should be plenty of others.

I might also get rid of some other great tools that just aren't pulling their weight in my shop.

My preference is to ship them within Europe. This is an opportunity, because Ohio planes don't tend to come up that often here. However, I can ship to the US using USPS domestically for another couple days.
