Woodworking tools have changed a lot over the years but there is something special about using an old tool. Old tools were often made by hand and were meant to last. It might surprise you but some people actually prefer using vintage woodworking tools over the new ones. Antique tools are also great for decorating a shop or den and some can even be worth a lot of money. Thanks to the internet there is now a large collector's market for these tools.
Vintage woodworking tools can be very beautiful. Collecting them can be a great hobby and is relatively easy to get started with. There is a good chance that you already have some antique tools in your attic, basement or shop. Collecting and working with these tools is a great way to connect to our past.
