|I'm a tool...

I want these things...
Some japanese chisels. These happen to be by grizzly, and are $15 a piece, about half the price of the cheapest japanese chisels with the maker named.
Rosewood planes by Mujingfang. Really good for the money, and the money is not that scary.
Some scrapers and a burnisher (not shown). Scrapers are used to smooth wood, and work much like a plane blade, but are held with the hand instead of a blade held by a metal or wood contraption. They can all but replace sandpaper, and even the good ones are only $5 or $10 a piece. As a bonus, they don't create dust, they create shavings, so no airborne particulates, or much fewer than sandpaper, anyway.
That is all. I will go find some more pictures of really expensive tools and post those some other time...
