I used these...

An electric plane, beltsander, powerfile, dremel type tool, router, and the one i used most and wouldn't be without the electric chisel/scraper. It can be fitted with interchangeable blades and the curved chisel is the one i use most. I also use a selection of hand chisels, wood files, sanding blocks and sandpaper. Having some various size tubing is good for wrapping sandpaper around too.
Here's where the stock is at now.

I'll be back on with it soon.
