Japanese hand tool enthusiasts should check out the new Gyokucho handsaws at Woodcraft – updated versions of general-purpose and joinery saws that feature handles made of the latest, textured Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE), a lightweight material with user-friendly features.
Woodcraft has entered the saw blade manufacturing market with six new WoodRiver® products. Director of Product Development Darin Lawrence and Product Development Manager Charles Wolfe said, “The main focus when developing these products was to provide the best quality possible at a price that could beat anyone else in the market. We absolutely hit that with our new saw blades.”
Like most woodworking projects, before you can get to the final result, prep work and jigs play an important role, before the actual turning process begins. The biggest attribute to lathe turning is that finished results can typically be attained faster with almost instant gratification. This WoodRiver Pen Drilling Vise with 7mm Drill Guide & Stop Collar combo aids in that process for the prep work, especially for the novice turner, or those who may not have a drill press to begin the wood turning creative adventure.
A handmade chisel is more than a woodworking tool. It imbues the spirit of that Master Blacksmith and his heritage. It represents hours of the maker’s focused energy and the work of his hands. It carries on the Japanese toolmaking tradition. Those things cannot be sought through a mass-produced instrument. The discriminating craftsman should own at least one handmade Japanese chisel (or a set!) in his or her lifetime. Learn more about the makers and their chisels in this Woodworking Adventures blog.
A new Bevel Edge Socket Chisel series is now part of the WoodRiver line of hand tools from Woodcraft.
