Are you a woodworker who likes to use old tools? You know, hand planes from the mid 19th century? Reproductions chisels from the 18th century?
That’s not old…
Try knapping a piece of flint to use as a plane and then tell us about old woodworking tools.
Torjus Gaaren of primitiveways.com takes readers on an adventure into really-old-school (up to 2.5 million years ago) woodworking with stone and antler tools for splitting, hewing, sawing, carving and planing wood. While it may seem like a crazy thing to even consider with today’s modern steel tools, the write up is fascinating and can give you a unique look into the history of our craft.
