Planes by me. I made these planes to cut small grooves for drawer and tray bottoms. They work great and I love using them.
I enjoy making tools. There is just something very satisfying about making them and (best of all) using them. I think it’s because I make tools to solve problems that arise when I’m making furniture. Everytime I use the tool I smile because it does the exact job I wanted it to do (and does it well, I might add!). I’ve made marking knives, marking gauges, and hand planes. I use them all on a regular basis. I also like seeing the hand tools that others have made. So, I started up a gallery page in Readers Gallery where we can post our wares and tell their stories. I’m anxious to see your work and I’m sure that some of you are going to post some extraordinary work. I can’t wait.

Marking guage with an edge. I have used many types of gauge, but I've been making my own for a long time. Why? Because I like having a cutter rather than pin and I can shape the fence to fit my hand.

Absolutely. I would love the gallery to continuously expand, so post photos whenever you make a new tool.
Are you still looking for shop made tool photos?
Just passing through, great idea, a site to post shop made tools. However, my shop made tools are not as exquisite as yours posted above. I enjoy spending most of my shop time building tools, jigs, fixtures, and templets. Keep it up and I'll check in later.
