Default As promised, pictures of my shop

My humble work......uhh...play shop. I am only a hobbiest but have been collecting tools for a few days. I do enjoy making saw dust with just about any tool. Would love to see pictures of your shop also. Robbie

Hey Jimmie.... that's not a shop... it's a museum.

WOW... never seen so much beauty collected in one place. Hand tools give me that warm fuzzy feeling all over.

Do you use all those planes and what for ?

Ok, now that I've gained my composure....

that my good man, is one heck of a nice shop!!! Looked over your other posts as well, and must say, you are well equiped.

I really like how you've displayed your planes. Like Bob N. up there, I do have a soft spot for planes of all types. Only have a dozen or so, but love every one of em! What do you do for sharpening?

btw... if one of those #2's ever need a good home, look me up!! I've got a grandson thats coming of age

Very nice Jim

When I see pictures like that I wish I still had mind and all the old tools I picked down the years...I recall one old guy came in the shop and said I have some old planes I would like to sale and it was about 50 or so in a big wooden box from Roy Underhill's toy box I think I got them for a song..

Your collection of tools is inspiring, and maybe to kill for, what an awesome collection of planes i'm impressed.
