First off I'd like to thank all the folks who participated on our Hand Plane Specifications Sheet Template for our new wiki.

Now I have another mission I'd like ya'lls help on, I am looking for the main hand tool categories. Just the main ones, we can talk about sub categories at a later date. Of course this is for our new wiki project.

Here is what I have thus far. If you feel any of the categories I have so far can be consolidated further, please advise. I look forward to anyone's input and interest! We are looking for any missed categories from what you see below.

I guess squares and angles could be listed under "measuring".


Marking tools combined with measuring?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
