For the woodworker, fine, precious timbers present wonderful possibilities. For me using fine hand tools not only adds detail and soul to ones work but makes the process of realising those possibilities a tremendously joyful experience.
I make Wooden Hand Planes in the style of legendary woodworker James Krenov.
"I make my own planes, of fine wood and fine steel, not out of nostalgia for bygone days, but because I think that if you have the finest planes, if you have succeeded in making yourself some really fine tools, it does prompt you to work more carefully. Such tools spare energy, they save time for you, and I believe that they allow you to work more joyfully to exceed the performances that you have done before." - James Krenov
