I've only been home a short while from the WIA Conference and my thoughts are still in the marketplace.
As per usual, I spent a lot of time chatting with tool makers and other woodworkers.
Here are some of the new products that were on display and some of the people that I met for the first time.
I don't need to tell you that all of these toolmakers are top notch. Every single tool that was offered by them was finely-crafted and works exceptionally well.
When making a decision between which toolmaker to choose for chisels, planes, saws, etc., it often comes down to personal preference.
That's where having the opportunity to try the tools in person makes all the difference in your decision-making.
These are marvelous toolmakers. You simply cannot go wrong with any of them.
