Sorting through the immense volume of information out there can be daunting, to say the least.
Give me a classic chisel, slick, plane, saw or other woodworking implement, and I’m as happy as a clam. On the other hand, some tools have a greater collectible value.  Moving back to our example of the Stanley Bailey pattern planes, the No.
And, that leads to an interesting discussion of why people collect old tools and what their intended purpose is.


While they may look rusty and crusty, they can be brought back into usable shape in very short order.  With an upgraded iron for a plane or some regrinding for a chisel, they can work circles around many of the cheaply banged out offerings at the local home improvement store.
Finger joints are perfect for box joinery, case construction without dovetails, shop furniture, and more. See how to make and use Theisena€™s jig in the animation below then follow these links for written instructions and a plan with dimensions. In issue #214, we featured another one: a dedicated tablesaw sled by Dennis Theisen of Grand Rapids, Mich.


The jig is super easy to make (some can be highly-engineered like this one by Matthias Wandel) and cuts one size of fingers.
Scraper for the finish (sandpaper???!) Total satisfaction, time for reflection and enjoying the final results.
