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.

I hope that you may visit my new website: http://www.spoonscarver.com/
