With the tool chest done it’s now time to turn my attention to preparing my tools for their new home. No tool chest would be complete without the essential bench planes needed by the joiner. I would have very much liked to of invested in some premium planes from Lie-Nielsen or Clifton. Sadly for me my budget can’t stretch that far, or maybe that’s a good thing……..
The afore-mentioned companies do indeed make some wonderful tools, full of craftsmanship and attention to detail, but are the antique or vintage planes available from auction sites or car boot sales really that bad?
