Re: Hand Tools Reinvented

These tools hearken back to days when any craftsman was proud to put their name one their work. While all of these pieces are beautiful in form, they also appear from the photos and slide show to be very functional as well.

Thank you for sharing your passion with all of us Abiel

Re: Salute to a Tree Lover

I am choked up by this story. I am not surprised that someone chose to care for this magnificent tree for half of his very long life. We the woodworking community should ensure we say thanks often and loudly for those people those people like Frank Knight whose selfless acts preserve trees and forests alike.

Frank I hope your journey beyond allows you much peace and contentment in a grove of fabulous elms that are healthy and eternal.

Thank you Mr Becksvoort for your tribute to Frank, it is truly fitting indeed

Frank, RIP knowing your care of a simple tree has touched the heart of a person thousands of miles away

Re: Handmade A13 Infill Plane

Tools are to be used - and this one is great. Enjoy many years of use. It is a collectors' piece and you should be very proud to have created it.

Re: 1000 Year Old Redwood

Boy a piece of wood like that makes a person wonder what they might think of daring to do with that. I can't wait to see what you post when the project is finished.

Re: Plum cabinet

the integration of natural form and cabinetry is wonderful. A very nice job indeed, and I have never heard of Plumb Wood but I think the effect has created a work of art.

Re: Kona Wind

Totally awesome Squidmin. I like to carve - some day I hope I can produce art like this

Re: Czappa's Studio

I love it Czappa - looks like my Garage shop which I can only use late April to October because I live in Canada so I have no heat and lots of cold LOL

Stacked to the rafters with my stuff on one side and my wife's stuff on the other LOL about 220 sq feet to work in, everything but the 6 foot bench is on wheeels so I can roll it out of the garage on a sunny day

Re: Some times it seems so small but I get things done

John - remember - the most important thing is you are doing - not talking about it. I can only use my garage shop from April to October as it is unheated in Alberta and I have frost the rest of the year. So every year it is take all freezable stuff indoors to the basement and then I carve at the dining room table in the winter when my wife doesn't have an art project on it LOL
