Hand Tools

There are three camps of woodworkers. To over-simplify, these three camps contain:

  1. machine tool woodworkers,
  2. hand tool woodworkers, and
  3. those of us that use both machine and hand tools

I’m in the latter group. I love the speed and ease of machines as they allow you to quickly get wood to a usable state. I love hand tools because they don’t make noise that annoys your neighbour, and are quick to setup and use when you need them.

I also restore old tools for use in my workshop. You can see some that I’ve recently restored below:

Use the links from the menu (above) to get to each tool’s page directly to learn more about them and discover their journey from junk to treasure.
