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.

Hi Terry, payment has been sent. I'm looking forward to using another of your great planes. I recently liberated one of your Cooktown Ironwood block planes with tool steel iron from the USA where it had sat unused in its box for a number of years. Showing it to one of my mates I was immediately met with ridicule for buying a wooden plane, which surely couldn't be as good as a steel or iron plane. I then quickly reset the blade and took to a cranky piece of Pink Ivory. So, without a single pass on the honing stone and completely unknown history the little block plane started shaving wispy curls off the 2 x 2 block of wood. One end had some tiny tear out so I reversed the iron and scraped the surface down to a superb burnished finish. I then applied a little Organoil burnishing oil to half of the finished surface and passed it to my sceptical mate who could barely believe his eyes that it hadn't been finished with 1200 grit sandpaper. Mission complete. I can't wait to see how it goes after I give it a sharpen up. So be proud of another great plane and 2 total converts to your excellent tools. I'll certainly be back for more as my miserable service disability pension allows. Who needs food? Regards Geoff Williams
