Vintage Grinder-hand powered. If you do much sharpening, you know how valuable a hollow ground tool is. Using a low speed grinder is a way to grind your tool safely without losing the steel’s temper. Also, it is easier to grind accurately at low speed.Anyone who has attended inside passage school of fine cabinetmaking knows about hand crank grinders, and how wonderful it is to have a hollow ground blade to sharpen.the problem has always been finding a good quality grinder, as the han...

Teaching a class at Lee Valley

Teaching a class at Lee Valley

I want to start by saying I enjoyed myself and I think the students left with better hand tool and dovetail skills than they started with. I had many handshakes and smiles at the end, so I hope everyone feels that they got their moneys worth of instruction. Now the critique. there was a critique form for the students, but not for me. I had offered to teach a different class, but told them I was flexible if they needed something covered off, which I am. I received an e-mail some weeks la...

I have had a set of the Lie-Nielsen Joinery floats for a few months now, and unbelievably i have even found uses for them.When i first saw these tools advertised on their site, I actually called my wife over , and showed her.

Smiling and being thankful, I put them all in the tool roll, and tossed ...
