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..

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.

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.
