Re: The A2 Steel Debate Going on Elsewhere

I thought their furniture is quite nice. Now you're suggesting someone said it's fake?

Actually David, to be fair, Warren was the one to state that they were faking hand tool work. ("I think they just did the hand planing for show in the video, then they go back to using their expensive machinery. The impression I got was that they learned their planing techniques from watching videos of other guys who also just plane a board to "show you how it's done", then go back to their machinery.")

Like Charles, I think that Doucette and Wolfe do excellent work. I also enjoy their videos, and I believe their hand work demonstrates they have achieved a high level of skills. This is not 18th Century technique. So what? The end results are excellent.

Regards from Perth

Derek
