Lyn Mangiameli is one of those rare woodworkers equally at home on the lathe and at the workbench. The common thread is his preference for highly figured exotic woods, which provide a challenge to handplaning and turning alike. A forensic neuropsychologist by profession, Mangiameli is also known for his Internet reviews of woodturning tools and handplanes, many of which illustrate ways woodworkers can evaluate the performance of their own tools.
