Traditional woodworking tools & molding planes


Our objective at Red Rose Reproductions is the recreation of historic woodworking hand tools, with an emphasis on side escapement molding and specialty planes. Other tools we produce include winding sticks, bench hooks, a portable workbench, and tools made by Acer-Ferrous Toolworks, which include wooden vice screws and the sector. For the plane maker, we stock quarter sawn beech billets, tapered bench plane irons, and full-scale hollow and round plane plans. Also, classes for making a pair of hollow and rounds are offered several times a year.

Nobody wants to waste wood, including me. Especially when it's some very nice quarter sawn beech. I am cutting out sets of match plane billets for a near future run and here is how I'm getting the most out of the stock.

These two pieces of stock are consecutively cut from the same plank for excellent grain matching. I will resaw them for dead quarter sawn grain. The two pair of match planes shown here are different sizes to maximize the yield from the wood. These plane offcuts are very helpful laying out my cuts. The offset of the grips on match planes are opposite of each other so they are complimentary to each other when laying out.

I've been a bit quiet here lately, but for good reason. We went to Pennsylvania to visit our daughter and son-in-law who just had their first child, who is also our first grandchild. Maria was born July 27th and is doing just fine. ...

Recently finished both panel raising planes and cooper planes. While the panel raisers are all sold, the cooper plane is in stock now.
This plane has a 3" radiused convex sole and was originally designed to clean up the insides of small coopered work, but it also has many other applications.
