I think Paul Sellers agenda is to return to basics and not put so much dependence on the latest and greatest tool. I think he sees todays woodworkers falling into a trap set by the tool makers and sellers in the same way the food industry has gone. Everywhere you go, the emphasis is on “CONVENIENCE”. Don’t buy that vegetable; buy this one that is already washed and packaged for immediate use. Use this new tool. It will work faster than your old way of doing it. Convenience costs the consumer more. It can be the difference between a 99ยข a pound chicken and the same chicken cut up in parts and sold for $6.00. Going back to basics doesn’t have to go back as far as Roy Underhill.
