Tom Lie Nielsen re-introduced quality hand planes to the West almost single handed. In the early 1980’s, stimulated by the demands of the wood craft revival, he started manufacturing re-interpretations of classic Stanley planes. Essentially, as the demands placed on hand tools had declined with the introduction of machines, so too had the quality of those tools. Serious woodworkers scoured flea markets for ‘old’ Stanley planes, but there were not enough to meet demand. Lie Nielsen did not radically redesign the tools, but he went to extraordinary lengths to use the best materials available and made the tools as beautiful as they were useful.
