A Treat For Tool Nuts
For several years we offered Gramercy Holdfasts as part of our Benchmaker's Package. Although we don't offer them anymore as part of that package, we are still huge fans of them. And suffice it to say we're still huge fans (and customers) of Tools For Working Wood in Brooklyn, NY.
Joel, Tim, Ben, Chrystal (I'm sure I'm forgetting someone) have put together a simply wonderful gift for not only us die-hard handtool woodworkers, but also for us tool junkies as well.
Take a look at the what the good folks at TFWW have put together. They call it "Modern Edge Tools"
For fans of the old Popular Mechanics magazines of the 1950's, this will be right up your alley. I'm a child of the 70's, but this was a real fun read. A real work of graphic art as well.
Hats off to the TFWW crew. Given what they've been through the past few weeks, I'm going to be doing a lot of my Christmas shopping at TFWW. You should too.
