Those little Veritas corner rounding planes - the ones bent from a piece of steel with the little elliptical opening. Woodcraft sells them for $14 apiece. They either split the grain or require so much pressure to work that my fingers get sore quite quickly. Easier and more consistent to use sandpaper or a router.

Gee I thought they looked like a neat idea. But I'll take your word for it.

Hate to say it but I use one most every day at work. Find is one of the best tolls available. Course I'm not using it on wood but on plastic which is still warm from the injection mold. Trims the flash quite well. Never tried em on wood though.

Real handy on sheet plastic, though.

mouth, this "plane" will split off more than you wanted pretty quickly. And the grain direction on a corner can be tricky, particularly when the grain on each adjacent surface is sloping in opposite directions.

tricky.
Easier yet, a block plane set for very fine cut, with very tight mouth. Three or four passes at different angles gives you as rounded an edge as you could ask for. (At least to these over-40 eyes, an 1/16" octagon is close enough to a 1/16" diameter circle.)

I actually like a chamfer from a block plane rather than the round-over for many projects. And putting in a chamfer with the plane is a whole lot more fun than running a screaming router.

Water stones. I found that I was spending more time trying to take care of the stones than I was using them to sharpen anything. I scary sharp now.

Whoa! That sounds like something overheard in a San Franscisco bar. ;-) [Sorry, just hit me as funny]

Naw. Actually, the kids bought them for me, so I guess I had better hang on to them a while longer.

A Japanese flush cut saw. It bends easily and I have difficulty using it (maybe my technique). It always turns and cuts into the surface I'm trying to flush with. I have much better results using a Japanese Razor saw. I cut off close to the surface, then use a small low angle block plane to do the flush trim part.

I agree with Bob - A Japanese flush cut saw. For all the same reasons he mentions.

SWMBO bought me a Black and Decker "sanding mouse" 2 years ago for Christmas. I've never used it, and she's never asked about it. As far as woodworking stuff, clamps. I've got too damn many clamps.

personally came from a guy who had TWO rusty old pipe clamps total. He made oak furniture, cherry furniture and did it on a clamping table using wedges and twisted rope.
He used rope twisted tight with a stick to make drawers and boxes and everything came out perfect.
Just thinking about it brings back the stench of rancid hide glue he always had bubbling away.

I have one of those, it's great for getting into small spaces and also SWMBO uses it, she doesn't like my big sander.

There are several, but up among the top 5 is the drill press mortising attachement. After having the chuck drop a couple of times, one decides that this is not the way to go.

A Ryobi detail sander. It looked like a good idea at the time but...
