Some Hand Planes

My hobby, my profession

I started my working life as an engine fitter and subsequently, studied mechanical engineering. After 47 years of serving in a business I went into retirement and my hobby became my new profession.

Ever since I can remember I worked with wood in my leisure time. Not surprisingly, the tools I am most interested in are woodworking planes. So in 2005, I started to produce my own hand-crafted hand planes in the style of the famous Norris and Spier tools in my workshop.
