On the Diversity of Saws


Tags:Woodworking Tools and Techniques
I get routinely asked what saws someone needs for woodworking and why some people have so many saws and do I need one of every type. When one is a professional, working by hand, having a perfectly tuned tool is productive. Historically each trade had it's own specialized equipment which in each case was tuned for specific tasks more efficiently than the generic version of the same tool. In...more..

Woodcarving At Coney Island


Last Sunday we went to see the Cyclones play at Coney Island. While not specifically woodworking related, going to see a baseball game in a small stadium, wandering around the boardwalk, the arcade, eating hot-dogs, and of course the beach is traditional entertainment and has a similar tradition to making stuff in your basement. I wasn't expecting to talk about woodworking because I wasn't...more..

Brooklyn Guild


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.

Working Hard? or Hardly Woodworking in America


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..
