Wasn't Macaroni a dowel maker?........
 
Maiden wood sounds like Virgin wood............
 
Old woman's Tooth sounds like a hag tooth which is an old Stanley's 271 (71) router plane.....................  just seem to think of that
 
Some nice old planes can be seen >> here <<

Well here are the answers

Macaroni
A flat bottomed u-shaped tool used in carving

Maiden Wood
A term applied to young ash trees suggesting greater suppleness and elasticity

Old Womens Tooth
An old fashioned wood router with one tooth-like blade

One out of three not bad

Surprising what you can find in old woodworking books. And there is me thinking Macaroni was something you ate.
