Shopmade Tools: You have ’em, we want ’em
The next edition of Tools & Shops is in production now, and we’re looking for your shopmade handplanes, marking gauges, saws — you name it — to feature in the Readers Gallery. The gallery in this special issue usually focuses on either shopmade tools or beautiful shops, and if you have either, we’d like to see it.
Simply follow this link, fill out the form and send us a few photos, and you’ll be in the running for a spot in our gallery. The only catch is that we need them by Monday, August 27. So get out your camera and send us some shots, soon!
