Lie-Nielsen Toolworks LIE-NIELSEN TOOLWORKS began in 1981 as an effort to make top-quality hand tools available again from a U.S. maker and to revive discontinued, but useful, designs so the average woodworker could obtain them. Today we make over 50 types of planes, saws, spokeshaves, chisels, floats and more. We have improved and refined designs, and use better materials like Ductile Iron and Manganese Bronze for castings and cryogenically treated A-2 Tool Steel for the blades. Our plane blades are much thicker than those of any other production planes. The quality of machining and finishing results in a tool that looks as great as it works, and will be a pleasure to use for years to come.

Default Violin maker's plane

Lie-Nielsen has just released a new violin-maker's block plane:

Lie-Nielsen Toolworks USA | Violin Maker's Plane









Isn't that the cutest little plane you've ever seen?

Almost the same size as the model maker's plane, only bronze. Nice!

Panabannana,

Thank you as I think this new plane is going to be my new jointer plane. Yep, that's it. It is really awesome and amazing that it has an adjuster.

For all those violins you're making?

How'd the MASW class go, Rutager? You should show us some pictures!
