Product Description

One of those woodworkers to have their lives changed by Covid is Will Adams, who after the pandemic chose to resign his teaching job and become a toolmaker. Now he recalls the gradual path he has trod to become renowned for his marking tools. And for home woodworkers, Gary Rogowski shows how to temper your own plane blades with a propane torch and vegetable oil to make a high-angle Krenov-style tool for scraping awkward grain.
