I was first seduced by the sweet siren song of my great-grandfather's Stanley No. 8 jointer plane persnicketing thru hard maple.
Lured further by the graceful lines of hundred year old brass, rusty steel, and tropical hardwoods, I fell headfirst down the
old tool rabbit hole and haven't yet surfaced.
After a dozen years of nearly unrestrained acquisition, a lack of space pushed me to begin selling tools at local tool meetings
and online. Although buying, collecting, using, and selling woodworking tools remains a part-time pursuit for me, it is truly
one of my passions.
On these pages, you will find vintage woodworking tools and books for sale, as well as the RakeMaker, an innovative guide
for beginning and experienced saw filers alike.
