February Shop Tour

I don’t know how long I will keep doing these, but Dyami Plotke uses them to keep himself motivated — and I think it’s working for me. Much of what I have laid out in my shop is based on how I use things, how I’ve seen recommendations to do layouts, and how the floor in my shop area needs things to be placed. Hope you enjoy!

#HandtoolThursday Galbert Draw Sharp

Ok, not really a favorite tool yet, but it’s just arrived and I plan to put it to use this year as I start work on some windsor chairs. Peter Galbert has this available via Benchcrafted now, so you can order yours if you find that you want a jig to help sharpen your draw knives.
