I’ve been making things from wood for about 50 years, but it wasn’t until I took 3 of David’s short courses at age 61 that I learned the precision and accuracy that’s possible from well-tuned hand tools. Previously I felt limited to the accuracy of my stationary power tools. Discovering the much greater precision available to me has changed the way I work; the resulting pieces are better, I make fewer compromises and less noise, and I enjoy it much more.
