I will be participating in the Hamilton Woodworking Show this October. My sessions will revolve around hand tools. The sessions will be virtual and occur over the 2-day period of October 21,22 of 2023. I will provide an introduction to the various hand tools used in woodworking. Since I use hand tools extensively in my furniture making, the hand tools I use most will be introduced and discussed. It isn’t necessary to begin hand tool woodworking with a complete set of tools as I will describe. A few critical hand tools will get you going. After some exposure to hand tools, you can then determine other hand tools you need for the type of woodworking you create. Join me on Saturday, Sunday October 21, 22 from 10-11AM at the Hamilton Woodworking Show woodshows.com
As a longtime member of the Furniture Society, I am honored to the featured member this week. The furniture Society revolves around a large group of furniture makers. The makers often contribute their time, expertise and knowledge to advance the artisanal furniture movement. The large membership consists of seasoned furniture maker and up and coming makers who share the same passion for furniture making and sharing their knowledge. You can view my work (portfolio) at the Furniture Society web site as well as portfolios of other furniture makers, some of which you might be familiar with.
