04-12-2015 01:23 PM by PersimmonHill | 1 comment »

Atop a little hill in southwestern Kentucky a persimmon falls free from its limb and lands far below upon the tin roof of the Woodworker’s shop.

Soon they will rain upon the roof each sounding like the strike of the drummer’s snare, they will cover the ground and begin to fill the air with their sweet scent and then the butterflies will come. They will come by the hundreds to light upon the ripenin...

If you were to plot my estate sale finds on a map you would notice some commonalities. The good tools came from older, blue-collar neighborhoods. Picture in your mind the areas in your city where older woodworkers might have situated themselves. Yes, there have been an estate sale or two located i...

Small hand planessome call it terrible, I call it charm and life… In last part of the blog we left with a little jointer, but also a few unanswered questions…First one: what happened to that wedge…(I’m sure it has kept all up all night, I sure did not sleep a quiet moment, worrying about that shape – smiles).What wedge?

Smoothest cut ever! Getting ready do glue up an extra board to make ...
