Hand Tools

I really enjoy making tools and tool accessories that I can then use on other projects. I've split the tools I've made into two sections of this site. Ones that are designed to help me with hand tool woodworking are in this area and you can find ones that are designed to help me with power tool woodworking at this link.

Hand Tools

  1. Grooving Planes: some hand planes for making grooves for box and drawer bases.
  2. Kerfing Saw: a simple tool to help ripping wood into thin pieces.
  3. Saw Jigs: some jigs to help with hand sawing.
  4. Dowel Plate: a simple tool to allow me to make dowels.
  5. Planing Dog: a very simple low-profile dog to help with planing thin material.
  6. Shooting Board: my first shooting board; one of my most often used tools.
  7. Sanding Blocks: simple blocks for hand sanding.
  8. Bar Clamps: sturdy clamps for large parts.
