Lie Nielsen, a family run business from Maine, makes some of the most beautiful and hardworking woodworking tools around. If I were even slightly a true wood worker I would consider purchasing their tools, however it is still inspiring to look.

They are probably most known for their planes, both block and bench planes, which are derived from the plans of the original Stanley 95 planers which Lie Nielson acquired.  Along with their tools they also make amazing wood working tables which are closer to pieces of fine furniture then workbenches.

All images come from the Lie Nielsen website except for the last which is from someone else’s visit to the Lie Nielsen headquarters where you can try out all their tools and workbenches.
