It seems like woodworking hand tools have become a second class set of tools in most shops. Power tools seem to have taken over every task that was once done using hand tools. While there is no question, power tools are very useful, I feel hand tools don't get the respect they deserve. I hope my hand tool reviews help you with your woodworking projects and increase your appreciation of hand tools.

You may notice that many of my reviews are favorable. I review my own tools that I've used over the years. If something is complete junk, I don't use it, therefore I don't review it.
