About Us

What I do

I collect, restore, refurbish, retain, and occasionally, resell antique iron hand planes.

Hand Planes of your dreams

The antique iron hand planes I refurbish are finished to a level far exceeding any of the original manufacturers.  These planes are both functional tools and show pieces.
