Japanese Woodworking Tools: Their Tradition, Spirit, and UseBy: Toshio Odate ISBN-10: 0941936465 ISBN-13: 978-0941936460 This book is one of the most inspiring woodworking tools books I have read.

This he do in the wonderful tone of a craftsman with a solid long apprenticeship under the wings of a master (his father) and a long lif...

The Workbench Design BookBy: Christopher Schwartz ISBN-10: 1558708405 ISBN-13: 978-1558708402 This book is really a landmark in workbench books for me. The workbench design book is a book that takes you on a tour in workbenches; we get a little historical insight, some geographical insight and the chance to see what workbenches some of the top guides of the trade are using. My personal favorite are with no doubt the 21st-century Workbench, this bench is so rock solid and well tho...

Fair priced little branding iron.

Fair priced little branding iron.

1071 days ago by mafe | 18 comments »

This is a UK seller but the price so fair that it might be worth buying even the shipment.And it comes in 220v and with an English power plug (I changed mine to a Danish plug). The burner plate with my Japanese inspired MaFe logo.You will need to make your own artwork and send it to the seller in the right file formats, no premade templates here so if you don’t know how to do this or have some one that can help you this is not the right product. Finally I got my branding iron!Do I need ...

Ashley Iles Mk 2 Bevel Edged Cabinetmakers Chisels I have for as long as I can remember wished for a quality set of chisels and few years ago I took the decision to spend the money on a set of Bahco 434, and boy did I regret this after… Why?

This is actually meant as a compliment bec...

Veritas Micro-Adjust Wheel Marking GaugeYes I have seen that there are already a review this tool! But!!! I do not all agree in the judgment: I think it’s a excellent marking tool, I think it’s so delicate, and well made, that it makes any LJ want to touch it!It’s precise.It’s cutting a sharp spur.Its a pleasure to hold in your hand. What I do agree, are that the micro adjustment are not super useful, but I actually used it to fine tune the other day for my do...
