Woodworking magazine’s Altoids tool contest

Altoids Router1

Woodworking magazine’s Altoids tool contest via MAKE. Christopher writes –

I was worried this would happen. Some of the entrants to our contest to build a tool from an Altoids tin built tools that actually worked. Sigh. Woodworkers are so practical. We’re also practical. And so the winner of our contest is Tom Bier, who built a working router plane from an Altoids tin. The tool is impossibly clever – you open the lid to store the iron and thumbscrew. Heck I’d buy one.

  1. You know, some of electronics geeks are so electonics focussed that we have no idea what a router plane actually is. I had to look it up, and no, it’s not a compact ip router for an airplane… It’s a wood shavey thing. Why didn’t they just call it that. Wood geeks! Sheesh!
