Collaboration 1


HNT Gordon Planes has recently finished a project invloving Colen Clenton, Phoebe Everill and myself, called 'Collaboration 1'. Collaboration 1 is a tool cabinet with a complete set of HNT Gordon and Colen Clenton tools. The tool cabinet was created by Phoebe Everill from 'School of Wood' - made from Sassafras, with black heart Sassafras inlays on the front doors and wenge/ebony trims. Colen Clenton made a collection of his tools in ebony, with a couple of 'one off' tools. HNT Gordon included 50 Ebony tools, with the first Moving Fillister ever made being apart of the set. Collaboration 1 is currently on display at Sturt Wood Gallery, and is selling for $59,400 through Sturt. Please email us for more information at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Terry, Thank you for the smoothing plane (HSS) and the trying plane (TS). I have just finished a dining table in blackwood and silky oak and the customer is drooling over the finish (so am I), thanks to your planes. I think the expected saving in sandpaper will cover the capital cost in no time at all. My next purchase is likely to be a spoke shave: probably the curved sole but I would appreciate any thoughts you have on the pros and cons. I might also get a spare tool steel blade for the smoothing plane (the HSS blade is taking me a long time to re-hone). I notice you will be at the Melbourne Timber and Working With Wood Show in October. Is this a good time to purchase or is it better to order on the web? Thanks again for superbly crafted equipment.
