We have set up a brand new Plane Makers Gallery on Handplane Central. The purpose of this gallery is to highlight some of the wonderful work that has been done by contemporary plane makers from around the world.

Whether you’re a professional or an amateur plane maker, if you’ve ever made a hand plane in the past – even just for your own enjoyment – then register for an account and start posting some pics of your work for others to see. You can even add some comments to the images, such as constructional notes, materials etc. It’s entirely up to you. To check it out, just click here.

Sources: While many of the dealers prices for Stanley planes are largely set by John Walters’ book “Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools” it appears that eBay, while acknowledging the Walters guide somewhat, tends to march to it’s own beat and sets its own prices. For that reason - and the fact that eBay’s reach and customer base is huge - I’ve decided to include a separate eBay average price here. Other sources include: “The Antique Tool Collector’s Guide To Value” by Ronald S. Barlow, “Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools” by John Walter, “The Stanley Plane” by Alvin Sellens, “Patrick’s Blood & Gore” by Patrick Leach, various auctions and sales of collectable tools and my own compilations of prices realized, observations and notes over the past 20+ years.
