Turned the one on the right, used the one on the left as a go-by.

Lots of outstanding shop made tools here... Some of you are incredibly productive for sure. The main benefit of this great thread might be the amount of inspiration one gets.

I like to build my own tools also, if I can find the time. Two of them:

A wooden shooting plane with lead filled (weighs about 7 lbs)




A plane hammer with ebony handle and inlayed ebony button

I decided to try to make three sets for plane making. They're 7/8", 5/8" and 3/8" wide. The first photo is of them after stress relieving, the second photo is my set with handles I rushed through to test the steel, and the third is Don using his. I would guess that Don uses his for about 90% of his chisel work and I almost always reach for mine with I'm doing anything with a chisel.









Wow! They are not laminated perhaps? Do you make them from one piece of O1? How did you get that bolster on the end?

Great effort.

Ps, I see you have allready answered my questions. Great effort nonetheless. I do wonder if a blacksmith couldn't produce such chisels with a lot less effort? Apart from the Japanese bladesmiths there doesn't seem to be much blacksmithing around anymore in the chisel area.
