Yesterday was a great day, woke up at 3:30am to drive an hour and half so I could be first at an estate sale, once I got my permanent number I hit up the local flea market. Scored another Wilton Bullet no.1740 with a 4 jaw and a Stanley no.5 with a great decal there. Then went back to the estate sale with a 1st in line card and picked up these Lie Nielsen's, no.4-1/2, 5-1/4, 5-1/2, no.9 and no.140. . . #woodworking #handtools #handplane #woodwork #lienielsen

#throwbackthursday Exactly one year ago was workbench was officially done. . I had zero intentions of building a PurpleHeart workbench when I walked in the lumber mill to buy wood, all I knew was that I was gonna buy the hardest cheapest wood they had since I planned on a 6 thick top. I saw 8/4 PurpleHeart on sale for $3.66 a bdft and talked myself into suffering through all the future sharpening and head banging that comes with working with such a difficult species. In the end it was the best damn thing I have built and invested into for my self. Having a solid workbench with great vises makes a huge difference in the quality of your woodwork and has improved my work flow a ton. I have spent thousands of hours at this bench in the last year and look forward to spending more on it till the day I die 💜 . . . #woodworking #finewoodworking #handtools #workbench #woodworkingbench
Some porch bed swings I made a few weeks back before my shop was overrun with tools. Made with Ash, painted black and hung with 1-1/2 rope, even figured out how to tie 8 strand braided eye splices. . . #homedecor #woodworking #porchbedswing #porchbed #handmade
Some very large tools, 24 Machinist Square by James Tillson marked 1874 and made close by in Elmira, NY , also a pair of 24 Pexto Dividers along with some 6 tools to size reference. . After realizing how my shitty 24 aluminum @woodpeckers_tools TSquare was holding up I sold it while it still was still in decent condition. Had been searching for a quality 24 since then until I saw this one in the vendor section at the auction last weekend. For $120 in great condition and still square as can be, it was exactly what I was looking for. Weighs in at 8lbs 2oz. I learned my lesson wasting money on garbage red aluminum tools that knick when a knife hits it or dents when it slides off the bench, this square has been around 5x longer than me and I'm sure I can pass it down when I go. . . #woodpeckersstillsuckfarts #qualitytools #tools #woodworking #woodpeckerstools
