Sleep Like an Egyptian

04/08/2015

Tags:Woodworking Tools and Techniques,Historical Subjects
Every since I was a kid I have been fascinated by this Egyptian funeral bier which is on exhibit in the Egyptian wing of the Met . Over the years, with each shifting of the galleries, it has been moved hither and yon but fortunately it is still on display. Dating from the Dynasty 1-2 about 2966-2926 BC (about 5000 year ago), its use of bull hoofs as feet is both functional and elegant. They have...more..

Game Changer: Should You Buy the Festool Conturo Edge-Bander?

03/11/2015

Tags:Product News, Sales, and Promotions
Should You Buy the Festool Conturo Edge-Bander ? First of all as a seller of tools with a mortgage to pay the obvious answer as far as I am concerned is a rousing "Yes!" However, from your standpoint it's the most expensive piece of equipment Festool has ever brought to the US, and it's too expensive just to sit in the shop and take up space. In all seriousness I think the Conturo...more..

Guest Blog: Many Sincere Thanks

We get lots of email, most good, some pointing out where we screwed up. This email from Tom Garry was so much fun to read, I thought that, with Tom's permission, I would share it with everyone: Dear Tools for Working Wood: Please allow me to share the thoughts of a dying man with you. (The doctor recently only gave me 5 or 6 more decades to live). When I was young, I heard or read...more..

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. I've been spending most of my energy fending off doom, and because of this I haven't managed to finish nearly as many projects as I've started, and I haven't started as many as I hoped I would. But, as Metallica points out, Time Marches On . So what have I been doing?...more..

Brooklyn Guild

11/07/2011

Tags:Unclassified
Last week I took an hour off work to go down the street to Brooklyn Guild , a design/build collective with a shop in Brooklyn. I met Brooklyn Guild when they came to Tools for Working Wood for hide glue . They began casually with 5 pounds, but within a week had bought nearly my weight in granulated hide. I had to know what they were working on that used so much glue, so I asked if I...more..

Working Hard? or Hardly Woodworking in America

10/06/2011

Tags:Product News, Sales, and Promotions,Misc.
I wrote this entry in an airplane cruising over the clouds as Tim and I headed home to Brooklyn from Woodworking in America . One week ago, after leaving work at midnight because we were finishing up the new Gramercy Tools Kings County Hammer, I rushed home to pack my underwater-camera and some socks before flopping into a cab for the ride to LGA. Tim and I arrived in Cincinnati a...more..
