Got this cool illustration from an antique market in France. Poor Bert didn't do to well and only got 12 out of 20 on this test. Although I think his drawing skills are pretty 👌 #wood #woodworking #drawing #handmade #handtools #handdrawn #skills #geometry #finewoodworking

Having an awesome time here in France but sadly the journey must end. I have had some truly amazing experiences though! The incredible tool museum @mopotroyes and astonishing Romanèche Thorens were definitely two great highlights. Not to mention visiting Auriou and getting a tour of their shop, learning and seeing how the rasps and Rifflers are taken from steel stock, forged, ground, shaped, hand stitched, hardened, and tempered, and taken to the final product. They are undoubtedly worth every penny you pay for them. Unfortunately there were not many tools at the few antique markets I visited, but one super nice guy who was the only tool seller in the market gave me a pair of dividers which I can't wait to get back to working order. Of coarse, you cant visit France without seeing the iconic sights like the Effiel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and all the cool little towns that makes France, France. I'm really excited to get back to my shop and start making things. 🔨 #wood #woodworking #France #journey #workshop #experience #handmade #handtools #forge #handforged #atelier #bespoke #woodcraft #lathe #turning #handturned #losttrades #museum #effieltower #paris #furniture #tools #maker #craft #art #deisgn #process #craftsmanship #finewoodworking #mortiseandtenon

Found this sweet carving inside a really amazing antique store. Didn't buy it but took loads of pictures of it. #wood #woodworking #woodcraft #carving #woodcarving #handmade #handtools #handcarved #sculpture #bespoke #finewoodworking

There aren't many tool markets in France but out of the 2 I went to I found these beautiful old locks. They are in perfect working condition and would be a nice touch to maybe a Dutch tool chest. So stoked to have these. #wood #woodworking #locks #vintage #bespoke #handtools #handmade #woodcraft #finewoodworking

Look! I found the Eiffel Tower, oh wait, it's just a monster woodworking project made by the companions. They were a group of traveling apprentices who spent three years learning from different masters a trade, either carpentry, stone masonry etc. This took 7 companions 5 years to complete and it is absolutely incredible. You can't fathom the height of the it without me standing next to it. The one to the right on of me is smaller bit still amazing, there are also many more unbelievable works in the museum. #wood #woodworking #handmade #handtools #incredible #amazing #companions #carpentry #stonemason #trades #losttrades #bespoke #woodcraft #promac #finewoodworking

The grind stone at @ljgraubner son's wedding was pretty impressive but how's this for size. This massive grind stone was a part of an old blacksmiths shop here in France. I reckon Tormek might have gone through a few design modifications making the Tormek 2.0. Here's me for a little perspective. #wood #woodworking #tormek #sharp #grinder #grinding #massive #perspective #blacksmith #forge #handmade #handtools #bespoke #finewoodworking

I'd say today was a success, not only did I get a bunch of carving done, but I cut this thing in half,minus the saw dust!! I know. Crazy right? #wood #woodworking #handmade #handtools #carving #half #split #handcarved #coffe #coffeetable #finewoodworking

Just went to @heathsoldwares and picked up this awesome Eclipse No.77 saw set. Already putting it into action. #wood #woodworking #saw #set #sawset #handtools #handmade #antique #awesome #finewoodworking #woodcraft

Nearly finished turning the handle. Now why nearly you say, well the lathe stopped working as I was doing the final inspection. This was kind of expected because the lathe was found the street but a simple switch replacement will fix the problem. #wood #woodworking #turning #woodturning #lathe #broke #broken #switch #replacement #handmade #handtools #handle #finewoodworking
