We get lots of email, most good, some pointing out where we screwed up.

(The doctor recently only gave me 5 or 6 more decades to live). When I was young, I heard or read...more..

This weekend I will be at the Somerset Woodworking Show in New Jersey along with our crew and a fair range of Gramercy Tools, Flexcut carving tools, DMT, Blaklader workwear, and of course Festool.

Marching On

11/30/2011

Tags:Misc.
This is not a spill your guts blog... unless you're tree, but lately the sky looks awfully grey.
