A woodworking tool is often just that – a utilitarian item that does a particular task in the shop.
But, sometimes you want your tool to make a statement. If that’s the case, how about having one of your hand planes custom engraved? Catharine Kennedy is a talented engraver who has extensive experience both engraving and using hand tools.
Designs can be as simple or complex as you would like. Monograms, acanthus leaves and other classic elements are some of the mainstays of her work, carved crisply into the tool’s metal sides.
Sure, the plane, knife or other tools may not work any better after it is engraved, but it will look so good.
