Virginia Toolworks

Virginia Toolworks Sales, Preservation, and Historical Reference for Fine Vintage Hand Tools... with a love of God, country, guns, trucks, and whiskey. Founded in 2008, Virginia Toolworks originated as a dealer of fine vintage hand tools (primarily hand planes).

Since then it has grown into a repository of information on the history, use, and preservation of hand tools, both vintage and modern. Please visit the main web/blog site at virginiatoolworks.wordpress.com. The Virginia Toolworks page serves to support the blog, build traffic, and provide a place to have a little fun. You'll find not only information and articles about vintage tools and woodworking, but tools of all kinds, as well as topics and posts that I find interesting - anything from vintage aircraft to firearms, and conservative values to bizarre things I've seen. Enjoy!

These are my favorite knives I’ve made so far! Set 2 for the happy couple. After the bride to be and I started working on the blue set, the groom messaged me to make a surprise set for her. We settled on an off-set serrated knife and a santoku style chef knife. Two major firsts for me here: serrated edge, and angled bolsters. Both accomplished with help from respected makers @federknives and @marshallhallknives

Steel: 52100 high carbon from @nj_steelbarron
Handle: dyed Black Ash Burl from @ironwoodman with brass bolsters and faux MOP accent.

On the stormy evening on February 18, 1952, the Coast Guard Motor Lifeboat CG 36500 performed the single greatest small-boat rescue in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard, saving 32 men from the stricken oil tanker PENDLETON. Today, CG 36500 operates as a museum boat — and a monument to the heroic deed of her crew.

This little Stanley no. 18. block plane was made sometime between 1913 and 1919, and I use it all the time. It's as close to mint condition as a 100 year old plane can be. The nickel plating on the cap is p e r f e c t, and the japanning 100%. Aside from a little patina on the cheeks, it looks like it just came out of the box.

The Fabulous Weird Trotter

In England, it is not uncommon to see "wavy" brick walls. Interestingly, the design uses fewer bricks than a straight wall. A straight wall that is just one brick thick is not sturdy enough to stand alone & can be easily toppled, so they generally have a thickness of at least two or more layers of bricks, & are also reinforced at regular intervals with vertical posts serving as buttresses. But a wavy "one-brick" wall stands just fine on its own due to the arch support provided by its shape, which combines both wall & buttress. Such a structure is called a "crinkle crankle wall" "the Old English version of "zig zag."

A bit of artistic flair on a Colt Navy revolver. Steam Punk I believe is the style.
