This weekend, June 25 and 26, Lie-Nielsen is having their final hand tool event for the season at the shop of the legendary Frank Klausz.

I have been experimenting more and more with hand tools, and I learned quickly you need a proper workbench to get the most out of hand tools. The last bench I built works really well for power tools and assembly, but it’s not stout enough to handle hand planning. It also lacked the necessary vises and bench dogs needed to secure your work.
