HNT Gordon Planes has recently finished a project invloving Colen Clenton, Phoebe Everill and myself, called 'Collaboration 1'. Collaboration 1 is a tool cabinet with a complete set of HNT Gordon and Colen Clenton tools. The tool cabinet was created by Phoebe Everill from 'School of Wood' - made from Sassafras, with black heart Sassafras inlays on the front doors and wenge/ebony trims. Colen Clenton made a collection of his tools in ebony, with a couple of 'one off' tools. HNT Gordon included 50 Ebony tools, with the first Moving Fillister ever made being apart of the set. Collaboration 1 is currently on display at Sturt Wood Gallery, and is selling for $59,400 through Sturt. Please email us for more information at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Hi  Terry,
I bought a gidgee smoothing plane with tool steel blade from you when you were in Perth in April.
I had high expectations of it, so much so that I was in danger of being disappointed.
My expectations were exceeded however when I found what a brilliant lustrous surface your plane makes on Western Australian Jarrah.
Apart from superior plane construction, this must reflect some special quality in the blade metallurgy and heat treatment you use.
While I have other premium-performance smoothing planes, including the infill planes I made, their performance is beaten by your plane, and it is becoming my most reached for finish plane.
I mentioned these points to a meeting of the Hand Tool Preservation Society of WA last night, and a number of HNT Gordon plane users agreed that they also noticed a superior sheen after using your planes.
Regards
Vic Williams
