Welcome and thank you for visiting. This blog is long overdue (my procrastination has gotten the better of me). The idea behind this blog is to document my progress into the world of handtool woodworking.
You may ask why would you want to do some thing like that? After all there are so many wonderful power tools out there that would make your life easier than trying to do it by hand. The well the answer is easy space and money. This spring I built my 10'x12' shop I just don't have the space to use a table saw much less all the other power tools. Not to mention the thousands of dollars to get the machinery to make fine quality furniture. Using handtools to do this just makes sense and when I think of an artisan I think handmade be it furniture, clothing, even that quilt my grandmother made.
Thanks for visiting!
