His blog, Giant Cypress, is a great place to come for sound advice on his collection of Japanese tools, treatises on wood selection and working methods and links to a rich array of woodworking knowledge.

Wilbur also likes to link to a number of other sites that will make you stop and think, and he also posts many of his witty observations for readers.

In addition to running the site, he’s also one heck of a funny guy.  Visit his site, I’m sure you will be happy
