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

Very nice Julio.

Keep up the amazing work or yours.
