  • New Build Event: Hand Tools

    We're back with a new Build Event - this time it's Hand Tools. The event runs from August 1 to 30, 2015. We're putting this notice out much earlier than the last build event so that everyone has time to prepare.


    You can get more information here.

      I'm going to be away for the next week, but when I get back I will let you all know of the additional prizes we have lined up. Some serious stuff here - stuff from Veritas, a number of air tool manufacturers, and some other tool manufacturers.

      All you have to do to win one of these tools is to build a hand tool and post your build thread in this section of our forum.

        Re: New Build Event: Hand Tools

        Does it have to be a hand tool made with woodworking or a hand tool for woodworking?
        When someone tells you it can't be done, it's a reflection of their limitations, not yours.

          I'm good with either one Lisa. The point of the event is just to get people talking about, and making, tools that have something to do with woodworking.

          What did you have in mind?

            I was thinking about a garden tool.

              We have seen some great tools built so far.

              We are now at 6 prizes. Seeing as there are currently only 5 hand tool build threads, if the event ended today everyone would get one prize, and we would still have one left over. Luckily, we still have 10 days left in the event, so get your hand tool build threads in!

              Thanks everyone.
