The California free-spirited family man designs and handcrafts unique furniture using mostly domestic hardwoods and time-honored techniques in his Paso Robles studio, overlooking the vineyards in wine country. His look is rugged, earthy and retro – much like the furniture he creates.

Absolutely the best for pattern cutting
I use this bit to cut out parts from patterns. I finish nail the pattern to the piece (after the piece has been cut nearly to shape on the band saw), mount the bit in my router table and duplicate the pattern on the piece. There's no chipping or burning of the part. The double bearing makes for an easier cut. The bit lasts quite a long time even when cutting oak and hard maple. Unfortunately, it's expensive to replace when it finally dulls. I don't attempt to sharpen it myself. I send it to a local sharpening service I trust.
