Port Townsend School of Woodworking
Preserving the Tradition


New Tools, New Tool Rack

We've been putting some real effort into ensuring that we can provide a great hand tool experience for everybody who takes a class the School. Since Christmas we've upgraded the tools at each work bench to include a holdfast,  jack plane, foreplane, carpentry mallet, mortice chisels, paring chisels, rip and crosscut carcass saws and new marking gauges.

Plus Abel Dances built a wonderful storage unit for all the teaching tools. Abel is our full time class lead for the Foundation Course and is doing a great job!

Our thanks to everyone who helped with the tools - our anonymous donor for all the Jack planes we converted to foreplanes, Lee Valley Tools and Woodcraft for helping us get the best tools.

You don't need to bring tools to a class but we'll encourage you to bring your own tools so that you can tune them and begin to master them!
