Lie Nielsen's Open House and the making of a table top – part 2: Touring the factory's floor.

RATE THIS:

In my last posting I said that part of the Open House event included a tour of the Lie Nielsen’s plant. Scroll down to see few of the pictures I took which show tools in different stages of machining and fitting. My favorite photo is of the # 73 rabbet plane on a granite tablet as it is being dressed up for final fit.
