We sell mostly hand forged tools from Sweden, which have a very limited supply.
Thank you for your patience and please check back as we are gradually building and offering inventory.
Please note - our tool request list will now be maintained only for our current and former students.
Tools not back-ordered or pre-sold will be listed in the on-line store here, in very small batches.

Tools from Svante Djärv & Hans Karlsson are mostly wait listed. We are not taking new requests at this time.
Tom Donahey has been building these elegant shave horses in North Carolina for 20 years. He developed this design in collaboration with chairmaker Brian Boggs. The shaving horse is one of the most useful tools for the traditional wood worker. The shave horse (or mule) combines features of an English bodgers shave horse and the Zug Stuhl type from Alpine Europe.
It acts as a quick releasing vise to hold work pieces when using hand tools.
Made from #1 yellow pine and solid birch plywood.
All hardware supplied, assembly required.
Shave horses are shipped UPS ground from North Carolina.

plus we offer some more readily obtainable tools to encourage everyone to get carving.
Our online store is still in its infancy, it is slowly being updated and we ask for your patience
and suggest that you check back occasionally.
We will continue our tool wait list at some point in the future, currently it is on hiatus.
We are pursuing relationships with several US based tool makers who have the potential to supply us
with highest-quality green woodworking tools, in keeping with what we import from Sweden.
