Hand tools

Here you will find the entries in which I talk about hand tools that are used without having to be plugged into the mains. Sharpening, adjustments and/or repairs of my woodworking tools. Woodworking projects where I mainly use the hand tools that I have in my woodworking shop, or where hand tools are the subject of the project.

In addition I also show how I make some woodworking hand tools such as clamps or bench vises.
