As I remember, Tom Lie-Nielsen used to work at GW… He originally sold his planes at GW, then left to build them full-time. it was before my time, but I’ve been told GW was once a reall woodworker’s supply house. It does seem to be going more “Sharper Image” meets “Restoration Hardware” meets “Skymall” with each new catalog.

Personally, I’ve never purchased anything from GW, as they’ve never had anything I wanted. Woodworking-wise, they seem to have lost their way and gotten pushed aside by lots of other vendors.
