I've recently begun working with the Louisiana State Museum of Rural Life to get their tool collection properly organized and refurbished
This is the first box I've gone through and catalogued. It's mostly moulding planes and of those mostly side beads. There is still plenty to go through as the other pictures portray. In Sept I'll be doing demonstrations of log felling, hewing, picket splitting, shingle splitting, a pit saw, two man cc saw and more.
In December I'll be demonstrating traditional furniture building with hand tools and hope to have regular classes on hand powered wood working by next year.
Thus far, every tool I've looked at has been in need of attention and the plan is to train a student intern or two presently employed there on properly restoring the tools.
The first picture is the first ones I've truly gone through, labeled and listed needed work. The other pictures are various items of interests.
I'll update with progress as this goes along. As I go along I'll give detailed info on any tools of particular interest or rarity.
