    I use sticking plans from the 1820’s every day to build and repair historical windows and doors in my restoration business in Pittsburgh PA. We do everything on site. Still cut and chop all mortises and tenons by hand. No power tools!

    Bah I live an hour away from their tool sale! I would come up to talk tools and architecture! Brown always has really interesting tools. It’s been awhile since I have been to one of their sales. I go to a lot of Horst tool auctions in Ephrata pa.

    “Wood bodied planes. I don’t have enough of them.” Hahaha! The words of a focused collector. For me that auction would be like a lumber yard with exotic woods. I like to wander around. Touch. Feel. Imagine. Thanks for the tour.

    My dad had quite a collection of antique tools, including several enormous wooden planes. I think my brother inherited them.

    A bit off topic, but i’ve been wanting to go to NBSS and attend their furniture and cabinetry class. I’m currently a carpenter by trade and since it’s a full time course do you have any ideas on gainful employement while there?
