Matthew S. Bickford began working wood as a hobbyist interested in period work. He soon became intrigued with moulding planes, specifically hollows and rounds, as a means to being able to copy or create specific profiles. After spending a moderate amount of time with antique planes he started making his own, which ultimately lead to his career as a planemaker.
Matt is the author of Mouldings in Practice, published by Lost Art Press. Matt is working with Lie-Nielsen Toolworks to make a DVD with the same title and subject which is due to be released in November of 2012.
Matt has also written for Popular Woodworking.
