I am a traditional woodworker using mostly hand tools and some electric. Of course I am a big Roy Underhill, Drew Langsner, Paul Sellers, and Peter Follansbee fan...lol
But I also respect the work of Norm Abraham, Chris Schwarz, Charles Neil and many others.

Somehow things in our modern world have moved so fast that I think the craft, care and pride has become second to strictly making money off of dumbed down consumers. Tools, automobiles, furniture, so many things seem spit out of a robotic assembly...
