Sawmaking returns to 26th Street

02/10/2016

Tags:Product News, Sales, and Promotions,Historical Subjects

Moving into any old building is an adventure and this coming Friday is the massive "move the inventory day". We are packing through Thursday night and hopefully, the trucks will show up on time.

This is the first glimpse inside our new space at 112 26th Street in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn. The new space is located only a few blocks from where we are now and as of yesterday the heat is on! The best part is that after eight years on...more..

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.

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..
