I just wanted to drop you a short note to say – thank you! The tools arrived yesterday and the only word that I can find to describe them is exquisite.
The bevel gauge is everything that people say it is. I have seen your double square before and was very impressed, but your bevel gauge is unbelievable. Its has been well worth the wait. Once again, thank you.

Chris, Since using your square my dovetails have significantly improved. I am very happy with my purchase.

My matched set of sliding bevels has arrived, and they are even more beautiful to use than they are to look at.
Really impressed and pleasantly surprised.
They are really solid – that is some piece of brass. And the heavier gauge steel in the bevel is another pleasant surprise. As are the perfect width dimensions of the slides and the internal slots.

My lace sheoak, 7” try square arrived today and I have to say this is an absolutely gorgeous tool. Frankly, it’s exceeded my expectations. The quality of the manufacturing is evident in every detail. The lace sheoak is far more beautiful than depicted on your web site; not nearly as dark as the picture implied. Although I’ve already used the try square to layout some tenons on a white oak table I’m building (within minutes of delivery), I’m almost afraid to store it with my other layout tools. I’m considering storing it in it’s box to prevent any accidental damage. Magnificent job, Chris! Thank you.

Chris, Tools arrived today, absolutely great, love them, now just need to get the wife busy so I can retire to the shed and use them. Thanks again Chris for the great value and attention to detail with your tools.
Hi Chris: I attended the Handworks Event this past week in Amana and bought 2 of your sliding bevels (4″ boxwood and 7″ Blackwood). The workmanship is amazing! It’s some of the best work I have ever seen. I will no longer have to worry about the blade moving while doing layout work. Fantastic job. Many Thanks. Will order more in future.
Take Care and have a safe trip back- John C. USA.
The Try Square arrived today. Thank you very much it is fabulous. And yes I will care for it with the reverence
it and its maker deserve. It is a tool made to be used and used it will be.
Hope you had a great christmas.

Chris, I received my small double square awhile back, and I have to say I am really impressed. This is a beautiful little tool, and obviously manufactured with love and care! It’s BRILLIANT!
With so much cheap stuff on the market, it’s a pleasure to find someone making quality tools for the discerning worker.
I’m perusing your site now to figure out what I can buy next.
Sincerely, Rush Bowman.
Hi Chris, I picked up my tools today & must say I’m more than excited to be the 1st steward of these fine art tools. I will use them with delight and take care with my new treasures.
Thanks a bunch!
Did I tell you I got the bevel? It’s awesome. Perfect in every way. I find myself trying to make angled parts just to use it! Stay cool! It’s 5 degrees (F) here right now, and it snowed 12″ overnight! Winter is here. Toasty in the shop though.

Hi Chris, Just letting you know that my bevel gauge arrive safely in the mail yesterday. Great workmanship, congratulations and thanks. I’m sure this will end up in the family heirloom category.
Hi Chris – my tools arrived this morning – to say I am pleased is an understatement – the square and bevel are fantastic.
Thanks – Doug. NSW. Australia.
Hi Chris, I received your knife today, and couldn’t be happier. You’ve designed the perfect marking knife.
