Melbourne Fine Woodworking Workshop

My recent visit to Melbourne Fine Woodworking’s premises for the Hand Tool Event also gave me a chance to sneak a peek around.

They certainly have some very interesting machines, from this old, exceptionally heavy cast iron bandsaw

To what would be the largest jointer I’ve seen to date

Must be about 2′ across!

There were these hand-made tapered tenon shavers,

And box-making forms for steam-bent veneer boxes. Of course to achieve that, you need a timber steamer, so they also had this home-made steamer unit

Still, I can’t get over that 24″ jointer!
