Don Williams Blogged recently on his website The Barn on White Run about some of his favorite woodworking Squares here. Many of us tool aficionados know that Don is the author of Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Study from Lost Art Press. Don is also an educator, scholar and previous conservator at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, simply put he knows his stuff!
Don is a key contributor of the english translation of the Works of André-Jacob Roubo’s “l’Art du Menuisier” also available from Lost Art Press. Many tool makers (myself included and woodworkers look up to Don for his knowledge and imprint on woodworking, I am humbled for his kind words on the Sterling Dovetail Square. A snippet: “this tool has remained on my bench top ever since I got it. I have yet to even put it away, it gets used so much!”
Yeah its that handy of a square, thank you for your kind words Don!
