The Birth Of A Tool. Part II. Chisel Making (by John Neeman) from John Neeman Tools on Vimeo.

Video Length: 6:31
Produced by: John Neeman Tools


Last week, I posted an enjoyable video of a gentleman turning a lampshade from a big piece of firewood. Here's another short video for your viewing pleasure. It's toolmaker John Neeman of Latvia forging a big timber slick. The part I found most interesting was how he makes the handle socket. Very cool. By the way, this is a gorgeous video.

Also, check out Neeman's website. Very cool. And, evidently, the response to this video and a few others has been so overwhelming that they've gotten order a plenty. In fact, so many that they've stopped taking in new orders for now.
