Japanese Tool Box – Addressing The Lacunae

Of the inventory in the finished Japanese tool box there are several instances of absence.  Over the next several days/weeks/months/years I expect to acquire or fabricate the following for inclusion:

mortise gauge(s)

panel gauge

straight edge/winding sticks

layout square(s)

saw sharpening vise

plane setting hammer

bigger hammer

even bigger hammer


Many of these additions will be housed on the underside of the lid, the only place they could fit.  I will chronicle each of the fabrication projects here along with at least two planing boards.
