my dad carved pliers like this out of pine wood starting in the 1940's the last pair he made was in the sixties when I was born.

Very cool! These would make a good hand clamp for items too soft for metal pliers. Thanks for sharing!

The carving of box joint pliers is a generic woodcarving subject mastered and passed along by apprentices for centuries.

I question Mr. Warther’s claim to first carver of this subject.

Wow, That's a great idea, I'll have to try making something like that!

This wooden plier was first made by a woodcarver named Ernest Warther. His museum in Dover Ohio holds his many intricate carvings, like railroad trains with moving wheels, doors and windows which open and close, all in a Lionel-sized gauge. There are many other exotic and wonderful items. It is well worth the stop!
He said the idea for carving these pliers came in a dream!
