This is our blog.. please read on
Which leads me to a first. As much as I like to hoard interesting bits of wood (and I still will), I thought I'd try to offer some interesting pieces for sales. I have a few bits of Parana Pine listed on ebay as a start and I have some more of it to list, along with a few other nice bits of other species should there be any interest. Parana Pine is an interesting timber, it's not a true "Pine" and found favour for stair making and projects requiring very clear long sections.
The small treasure trove of family tools at my disposal often throws up an interesting thing or two. I did not know we even had this holdfast.
Are you new to woodworking or interested in a good solid core of hand tools?
Firstly a big thank you to some clients of ours who were kind enough to let me use this image.
Not being a "writer" as such the idea of putting together a blog was a move outside of my comfort zone.
I want this post to be quick and to the point.
I don’t expect any of these photos I post when I have them will end up being earth shattering, after all, nothing new under the sun and all that.
I’m getting to grips with some paint making for my chest and making sure it's what I'm looking for.
One of the things I notice most moving between wooden and metal planes is the drag on metal planes.
The socket type bench chisel has always caught my eye. In volume terms it’s a distant second place when it comes the tang design.
I try to avoid hoarding wood but I will make an exception. In a recent project we replaced a flight of stairs.
