This page grew out of a fusion of three of my hobbies: medieval/renaissance recreation, woodworking, and antique tool collecting. Most of what’s out there on “traditional” (i.e.; hand tool) woodworking, antique tools, and woodworking focuses on the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries. As a result, I’ve collected material on medieval and renaissance woodworking for my own use.

Like the rest of the Web, this is a perpetual work in progress. You might think of this as the online version of my notes – as I get more information on a subject I eventually turn it into an article.
