Two Handed Rasps

” I designed these rasps to be used like a spokeshave and have dimensioned them accordingly. With a working area approximately 4” long and 1” wide, these rasps have both a flat and a half round surface.”

Marcou Chamfer Plane

Philip Marcou is a New Zealand plane maker, known for his incredible, custom-made hand planes. We’re happy to welcome him to the Hand Tool Emporium and have a limited stock of his Chamfer Planes.

Based on a traditional Japanese model, precise chamfers can be made easily and repeatedly with this tool.

Tried & True Varnish Oil

Tried & True Varnish Oil is a superior penetrating linseed oil and natural resin finish that is ideal for all interior woodwork; including furniture, flooring, tables, countertops and surfaces that come in contact with food. Varnish Oil is commonly used by woodworkers for easy, wipe-in application to bare wood or overtop an already-stained piece to achieve an even sheen and long-lasting durability.

Millie's All-Purpose Penetrating Tung Oil

Millie’s All Purpose Penetrating Tung Oil (with beeswax) was developed as a foolproof, easy-to-use, low-toxic, earth-friendly Polymerized Tung Oil that is safe to use on all types of porous surfaces, including unfinished wood such as salad bowls, butcher blocks, cutting boards, furniture, floors, wooden garden tool handles, timber frames and beams.
