Wood Working Tools Museum

I am in the process of creating an Antique Wood Working Tools Museum. To build my collection of Antique Wood Working Tools, I will trade Life Edge Wood Furniture and/or Wood with you. Please contact me today and let me know what antique tools you have that would be interested in trading with me.

John Walker: "Over the years I have accumulated a collection of machines to make the wood shop I have today. I became interested in wood working when I took my first wood shop class in high school. I bought my first machine in 1970 and it was a Sears Bench Saw. Little did I know I would become the wood shop teacher of the shop that I learned how to work with wood. Today, I use a set of machines which allow me to make the benches I've always wished to make."
