'A bad workman always blames his tools' as the old saying goes, but is this correct? It might be, but without good properly tuned tools a good craftsman is unable to carry out the work to the desired level.
At robinson house studio we pay particular attention to tool selection and preparation. A handplane purchased new, straight out of the box may require many hours before it is truly ready for fine woodwork. We cover all these aspects on our courses. A suggested tool kit is listed opposite.
