An afternoon at my brother’s woodworking shop

We have a small shop space on our property, and when we moved in last year it seemed like a no-brainer for my brother to set up his woodworking studio there. Ultimately, he’s going to need a bigger space–probably soon–but for now it’s great to have him around and to get to peek in on his work from time to time.

Earlier this week I hung around while my brother sharpened a new hand plane (his twenty-ninth hand plane! And each one with a specific purpose), and I took these shots of some of the beautiful tools and objects in his shop. (The last photo is an old one that I still love, from when he first built that beautiful workbench.)

There’s nothing like the right tool for the job.

  1. Is that right?
    Thank you for those photos. It makes me feel very close to both of you, as though I was there while you were working & photographing. Beautiful pictures and beautiful bench.
