Hi! My name is Jason and I love making things. Although my main interest is working wood with hand tools, I enjoy all forms of making. I am an engineer by training, a carpenter by trade, and have just been hired as an Interpretative Artisan at a local living history museum depicting our Pilgrim ancestors in Plymouth, MA (can you guess which museum?). I have a loving wife who somehow understands and supports my love for old rusty tools, and a dog that is very glad my hobby is not run by electric motors. I love reading blogs by other hand tool enthusiasts and figured that I would try and add my two cents into the blogosphere (even if it is mainly a case of what not to do). Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the interweb, and please feel free to sound off in the comments section to let me know how I am doing.
