This is my new three hand tools. It was made with the beech wood rest of my son´s crib. You can buy your tools. but if you make it, you know this tool is like you need. I know it can´t be a Lie-Nielsen tool, but I´m so proud to have got a tool that is born in my hands. Here in Spain, many of past cabinetmakers,will been made his own tools when he began his carrer. Now all people buy his tools, and lost the pleasure to make his tools.

Son un mazo, un gramil y un bloque para lijar. Estan hechos con madera de haya que me sobro, de la cuna de mi hijo. Se que no son precisamente de Lie-Nilsen, pero estoy orgulloso de usarlas por que han salido de mis manos.Antes los ebanistas se fabricaban, muchas de sus herramientas, al comienzo de su carrera, adaptandolas a sus propias necesidades, ahora todo se compra, y sea perdido el placer de hacerlo uno mismo.

Very nice tools! It is the journey that imparts the skill to the craftsman, not the end result.

Muy bien,tres utiles basicos de carpinteria fabricados por uno mismo,puede que el gramil sea demasiado largo y van mejor con cuchilla y no con punta pero eso ya lo veras tu.Llevas mucha razon en lo que cuentas,cada dia dependemos mas de las ferreterias y de las furbonetas de seur,muchas herramientas de este trabajo se estan extinguiendo porque tambien se extinguen esos trabajos…madreñeros,trilleros,toneleros y muchos mas,quizas algun dia publique unos cepillos curvos que fabrique en chapa galvanizada y roble,los utilizo para un primer vaciado de los asientos de las sillas,no son muy elegantes pero hacen su funcion muy bien.

Nothing like making and using your own tools!
