Show off the tools you've made!!

Other post have got me thinking about what tools you have made, whether hand or power. Here are mine... I have made 2 smoothing planes and one holder for a micro plane rasp.

Show me yours....

That will be one seriously long bow saw.

Insert witty signature line here.

Pictures got messed up...

rrbrown turned one of the marking knife handles for me. The other carved with a spoke shave.

And does making a skew chisel from a crap marple count? Lol

It really wasn't bad. Sourcing (improvising) parts was the only challenge. All of the hardware came from Lowe's hardware section... Even the brass flat bar.

For the thumb knob I epoxied a brass nut into the fence and into a screw.

Engraved Anderson Plane

While I didn't make this plane, that's obviously Wayne Anderson, I did engrave it for him. Just completed this week.

Shop notes had an issue on how to make those. When I get home, I'll look for the issue #. Shop notes used an old jig saw blade for the cutter. Just filed and sharpened.

Man, those are some old mock-up pictures from me! I've built some much nicer stuff since then.

Here's a sneak peek at something I'm working on right now -

Here is a chisel plane I made last year. I am working on a 18" bench plane, and have a couple of scrapers in mind for next year. I have also made a bandsaw table and fences. Drill press table coming, too.

The third picture is an old wooden plane that I reconditioned. It takes shavings I can read through.

I have no appetite to learn to be a bladesmith. For wood carvings such as spoons, bowls and kuksa, crooked knives are the only way to go. Mora (Sweden) makes #162, #163 & #164, ideal for this sort of work.
Instead, I rebevelled 2 pairs of Mora #171 Equus farrier's hook knives from 30 degrees to 12 degrees, including the little scorp-like hook at the tip. These are carving sharp.
I carve a lot of western red cedar pieces which I split out from log chunks (plentiful and usually free). Custom froe pounded out for my by a blacksmith. I need a straight tang. I made the bash-worthy mallet from an alder log.
To keep the undulations in the WRC, all I want to do is get the surface smooth enough to lay out a drawing. Started with a Mora #188, double bevel farrier's hook knife. Cut off the hook and down again to 12 degrees. Set this into an 18" willow handle. It was getting grubby-looking so the whip finish (dacron cord & glue) is really cosmetic. Because of the progressive sweep in the blade, you can't use a plane to smooth a surface like this does.
Lee Valley sells Haida-style crooked knife blades from Crescent Knife Works in Vancouver. They are very crudely sharpened. By the time you're ready to mess with these, you know how to make crooked blades "carving sharp" and you know exactly how to shape the handles for the way you like to carve. These are rosewood & mahogany glue-ups, the blades are canted 10 degrees. All double bevels carving sharp as 12 degrees. The whip finishes cover the mounting hardware.

Beautiful work Layne. I can see having this done to a special plane that has been in the family or a very special gift. Making a mental note.

I've posted these at various times throughout my time here, but I thought I'd put them here in this thread anyways. All the above pics have given me various ideas so I would hope to contribute too.

My Saw hook and it's extension. I cut the angles for it on my table saw with my Osbourne miter gauge and then glued and tacked them in place around the blade of my crosscut saw from Veritas. That way it's really tight on the blade and allows for very accurate cuts. I also left a trench on the right side for some shooting. I need to make a true dedicated shooting board though. This was made with utility in mind knowing I'd chew it up and make another sooner than later. I would make it shorter next time.

This is my Moxon vise I use for sawing. It's made out of ash. The hardware is from menards. I just drilled out a dowel for the handles. This hardware is, I think some gate hardware of some kind. I can't remember. It is a screw with a post running perpendicular to it. It was like $10 for all the hardware and I had the wood laying around. It grips like a pitbull. It's much easier to saw upright IMHO.
