High quality Used Instruments within the Midwest – Misplaced Artwork Press

Share This Post

Many guests to our storefront ask the place to purchase high quality classic woodworking instruments. We’ve just a few favourite on-line sellers (Patrick Leach, Jim Bode and Hyperkitten). However we at all times favor shopping for previous instruments in individual. 10 jack planes in individual is healthier than taking a look at 100 on eBay.

For in-person device buying in our neck of the woods, we suggest attending a device meet of the Mid-West Device Collectors Affiliation. Or a go to to Dan Raber at Colonial Homestead in Millersburg, Ohio.

Final week we made our irregularly scheduled pilgrimage to Colonial Homestead, which is in a brand new location, simply outdoors downtown Millersburg. As at all times, it was an insanely pleasurable shock to see so many high quality woodworking instruments lining the cabinets and tables of the shop. We didn’t have plenty of time to browse, perhaps 90 minutes. However I may have simply spent a whole day choosing by way of all of the instruments and finding out them.

I personal all of the instruments I have to make furnishings. However I nonetheless adore trying on the extensive sorts of instruments made by completely different producers over the past couple centuries. Plus, I’ve a comfortable spot in my coronary heart for user-made instruments and oddities. As somebody who each designs and makes use of woodworking instruments each day, Colonial Homestead recharges my batteries on the subject of instruments and gear design.

In the event you stay inside a day’s drive of Millersburg, Ohio, I like to recommend you load up the household and make the journey. Have them drop you off at Colonial Homestead with a wad of money. Then your loved ones can discover the attractive Amish nation that surrounds Millersburg, Berlin and Walnut Creek, Ohio. (The group there may be the second largest in North America.)

There’s good meals. And tons of kitschy buying available, particularly in Berlin. There are excursions, a cheese manufacturing facility and, properly simply try this web site. Beneath are only a few images of Dan’s retailer. There isn’t a approach to seize all of it.
