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.

For those interested in making their own drawer bottom plane, I am now offering a kit that includes full size plans, a tapered O-1 steel iron, two piece skate, and mounting screws. The iron is precision machined to size but will need to be heat treated and sharpened. Kit is $75 plus shipping.
I have quarter sawn beech billets stocked also, including the 1 1/4” size for this plane.

I thought I’d try to document the process of building the miter jack vises pretty closely for those wishing to build their own.

First up is stock prep for the base. All these parts have been jointed and planed to the same thickness, but not to final thickness yet, and the two long rails have been ripped 1/4” oversize in width. The parts are all from the same piece of wood for good grain matching. I make sure that the grain direction is the same on all pieces to help when hand planing later. I have hand jointed the edges on the insides of the long rails and the spacer piece, checking each one for square. Accuracy is important throughout the build process.
