Gentleman’s Tool Chest

View this post on Instagram

My good friend Rick Long was featured in Fine Woodworking Tools and Shops Winter 2020 Issue. His variation of the 1890s Hammacher Schlemmer Gentleman’s Tool Chest was on display at Woodcraft in Richmond VA. All I can say is Wow!! The pictures do not do it justice what a beautiful piece of work. The details, inlays, secret compartments, the placement of the tools, wood grain match, accent pieces, finish, etc. just beautiful! Congratulations Rick! If you ever get a chance to see it in person you will not be disappointed.. The details not visible in the pictures are just phenomenal! A true masterpiece!! #toolbox #handtools #handplanes #artisan #hammacherschlemmer #richmond #fredVA #guildofwoodworkers #oldtools #toolchest

Stools by Mark Morgan 1

What an incredible and inspirational video by Mark Morgan. Mr. Sentayehu Teshale is truly an inspiration not only to craftsman, but to what the human body and spirit is capable of when you allow your heart, and  passion to overcome your disabilities.

Sentayehu Teshale is a true craftsman.  Mulugeta Gebrekidan, one of the work shop students came up with the idea to film him at work. Sometimes you can see Sentayehu working in public around Addis Ababa.
