Architect’s Tool Set, William Robertson,1992

Both items are 1:12 scale. All tools are functional and the lock on the Architects Toolbox is functional. Robertson, who is astonishingly adept working small in metal as well as in wood, focuses on 1/1 2th scale versions of period furniture, architecture and tools. His shop contains a variety of machines, including an Inca jointer-planer with which he mills stock and routers with home-ground bits for cutting scale moldings, but the majority of his work is accomplished with hand tools. Aside from the omnipresent jeweler’s saw, there is a collection of tiny hand planes that he’s made and which, he says, “work absolutely perfectly—a scale plane takes off a scale shaving.”
