Joinery wood working hand tools

All of the quality tools that are on the work bench can often be found as used items in jumbles and auctions.

With todays easy access to so called power tools many wood working tasks are done with machines.

They are less suited for the type of work in the picture,the job is to rebate the teak (plantation grown) grate to enable it to fit on the new okoume / epoxy shower tray.

This type of work can be very satisfying ,it is not difficult work and saves the high cost of the power tools and the related cutters, its a whole lot safer too (smile)

Power tools such as a belt sander do have their place of course.
