21st March 2017

Sometimes you just never know 'what's in the box' and this small unassuming wooden box certainly reveals an unexpected surprise.

Packed full with 27 rosewood and boxwood planes plus a few squares and templates.  All apparently produced by the same craftsman.

There are pairs of hollows and rounds, smoothers plus tailed and compassed rebate and t-rebate planes.

Produced in a mixture of dark rosewood, boxwood and ebony, making the most of the contrasting colours.

A fantastic 'one off' group from a private collection.
