Each of them has come along as a result of a custom hatmaker asking for one, and so I have met some cool folks that are passionately working at something they love doing. Hopefully, all of us will get tired of ball caps at some point and look for a style that is better looking, and actually...

2427 days ago by Betsy | 5 comments »

Ok—- It’s been a while since I’ve blogged on my hand plane syndrome. I’ve been playing with them and getting to know a little bit about them. But I’m going to submit a few questions with pictures to hopefully make me understand how these wonderful little devices work. But before that—- I am reading Garrett Hack – the Handplane Book. It’s an excellent read. I’m a skimmer the first time I read through a book like this——I pick ...
