About me

Hand tool woodworking has always been something I have wanted to do. I was just a kid watching The Woodwrights Shop with Roy Underhill every Saturday afternoon. I would watch wishing I had the tools and skills to do what Roy was doing. 

Through the years I have built many projects ranging from building guitar amps, fixing vintage electronics, to building little items. I always looked forward to the woodworking parts when they came into a project. That was always my favourite part. 

I decided that I wanted to start woodworking with only hand tools. I started gathering tools, sometimes with difficulties finding a specific tool in my area in good shape, so I would buy what I found and repair and restore it. The tools Have turned out great and are used in my shop any time I’m there. 

So I hope you enjoy this site and feel free to contact me with any questions.
