I've designed this site for folks, who like me, are looking for some basic information on collecting and restoration of bench planes.  It's also an opportunity to share my collection with others who might be interested in learning about the history of woodworking planes and their evolution.   There's a lot to see on this site, especially if you like planes or reading drivel about collecting tools or hand planes.  Take your time, look around and if you don't see what you are looking for go to the contact page and leave me a message about what you ARE looking for.  Maybe I can help you find it.  This page is like Disneyland,  "Always changing, never finished" so make sure you check back often. 

 

I love helping folks find out more about their plane so if you  have a question feel free to ask. However, I'm not an appraiser and I no longer provide estimates of value. I am always looking for new and unique planes so if you have a plane you'd like to sell, you sure can make an offer with a price attached. Thanks for stopping by.
