It’s out for delivery today. I think it’s great that a company gets involved with their client base this way. It gets the word out about t...

So today I got a chance to go to Paul’s house to hang out and get a tutorial on the Chevalet. All I can say is WOW, what an amazing tool. From what I’ve read, this marquetry cutting device has been around since 1780 and is considered one of the first, in a sense, production tools in woodworking. While it looks intimidating, it’...
