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.

The sequence I use for the drawer bottom plane is to sharpen the iron and test cut early on. The distance from the edge of the workpiece to the groove is measured and noted. I am looking for .250", and because I left material on the fence, the initial measurement will be short. I can them plane the fence to obtain the precise 1/4" distance. The skate is taken on and off twice to access the fence. I am using assembly screws that will be replaced with screws with polished heads at final assembly.

I have sold most of the recently completed rabbet planes, but still have a limited number of 3/4" and 7/8" sizes in stock. As usual, they are sharp and ready to use out of the box. They're on my web site now.
