This site started as a record of attending a hand tool workshop at Homestead Heritage in Waco, Texas. You can find more information on the class on their website.
Right now the big project is the Vardo I’m building (more info below).
I’ll be adding more information on the construction projects I’ve done in the past, and the new projects coming up.
Hand planes, dovetails and all are new to me, but I’ve been doing rough construction for years. This is a chance to learn patience, detail, and how to build furniture with traditional hand tools.
My next big project is building a vardo for the business my wife and I run. You can see more about her handmade baby gifts and the vardo at babyvardo.com/blog
