David Stanley Tool Sales
 

A Must For Tool Collectors.
Next Auction Friday 11th August 2017.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We went to a David Stanley sale and Tim Smith gave Sarah & myself this absolutely beautiful boxwood plaque advertising my plane making, as most of you will know the center picture is copied from the inlaid tool chest lid in a Bristol Museum with subtle changes, the original has a tankard of beer in his hand, Tim has put a mitre plane instead which signifies what I make.
Tim has made the machine that did this work, he tells me it only works on a horizontal surface, both Sarah and I absolutely adore this plaque, we can not thank Tim enough.

This is the original lid lent to the Museum by Jane Rees, the picture doesn't do it justice.
