As a proud owner of one of your fine tools I have to say I am very excited to see what you have done with this guage. The work you do makes me want to push myself harder to be a better cabinetmaker. Thank you for the inspiration.

How did you shape the Iron?

Thank you so much for such positive feedback. This is a great place to test my cabinetry skills
Ryan, that work is left to files and diamond stones. I am very proud one of my tools are living in the USA
Muchas gracias compañeros por vuestros comentarios, como siempre me llenan de animo para superarme dia a dia en el tallercito. Ramon, no te equivocas, espero que sea este año si logro encontrar la madera que preciso. Entre mis planes tambien estan los bastrenes
