NWWT tools in the big time

Last year, Miguel Hernandez donated a box of old wooden planes.  I bought them and sent them to my friend Joe in North Carolina.  He is an old school tool guy.  he repaired a couple of the planes for his use.  In the box was a set of planes for making window frames.  Joe is a friend and student of Roy Underhill (The Woodwright's Shop on PBS).  Underhill was thrilled to get the planes since they are impossible ot find since the advent of the router and will use them in his class on window frame production and possible on TV.  

Nothing goes to waste.  

Those planes beyond repair were given to one of Joes friends that has a pirate theme restaurant for the display on the ships carpentry shop.

I couldn't figure out how to post the picture here so I put it up in Gallery page
