At the North Bennet Street school there is a huge emphasis on using antique and hand-made tools, something that has always interested me. In our firstst semester, we went to an antique tool auction as a class where we were able to buy planes, chisels, saws, carving tools, drawknives etc. They only needed a few hours work, some new turned handles, their blades flattened and sharpened, and some love to be just as good or better than a new tool purchased today. We also made some tools, such as the marking gauge and mallets show here, from scratch.
Pencil boxes: $55 - to $110 - Many woods and designs are available. I can incorporate a separate compartment for erasers.
Mitered dovetails. Locust and black walnut. Not for sale.
