Are you looking to commission a build that uses wood that you supply? If so, I'll supply the standard and appropriate answer, this time around: Look at the build threads here, look at the stickies "Who are you?" thread," and then contact people whose work you like. Luthiers are not allowed to solicit business by replying on a thread like this one.
Are you looking to borrow someone's tools to do a build yourself? Quite a different question.
So, please explain.
Every single one of the dozens of active builders on this forum has some combination of "machinery" and hand tools.
