Guest post on Brian Holcombe's Blog

A nice shot of two of my smoothers, that didn't make it into Brian's blog because of my Stone Age understanding of technology.

Brian Holcombe is one of the most interesting hand tool-based woodworkers I know. He makes fantastic furniture influenced by Japanese furniture, mid-century modernism, and various strands of contemporary studio furniture. What really stands out, apart from his excellent design sensibility, is his meticulous joinery and super-clean hand planed surfaces.

Brian asked me to write a guest post for his blog, and I was very happy to do so. The post is here, and Brian's homepage is here. I highly recommend taking some time to read through the blog--there's a wealth of great information and wonderful photographs. Enjoy!

  1. Excellent post Steve! I became aware of you through Brian and am very thankful, your approach to your work is extremely inspiring! Due to the difficulty of sourcing materials to make planes like these and your success in securing means to produce them, do you envision ever selling the materials in a kit form? I will be saving my pennies! Thanks again, look forward to following your journey.
