My Woodworking Blog

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #9: The Right Tool for the Right Job

This article was originally posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on Oct 3, 2010. Anybody see anything wrong with this picture? Show of hands…thought so. Nobody in their right mind would try this.
