As the title implies, this is a blog about the practice and history of traditional woodworking. My goal is to share as much of the knowledge I have gained from fifty years of practising traditional joinery with those who are interested in carrying on that same tradition.
As for the writer; suffice it to say that I’m best described as husband, father, veteran, teacher, student and professional woodworker.
And, if this page is dedicated to anyone it would be my Grandfather; a product of the English apprentice system tradition. From Gramps I learned first to sweep, then to sharpen (everything), to be patient and that “it’s a poor workman who blames his tools”.
