Andy Gibson gets a handle…

Guild member Andy Gibson has a grip on his woodworking…

Andy needs a bigger hammerOn his sanity… well… at least he believes you need a bigger hammer.

Actually, Andy’s work is superb, especially when it comes to his award winning ukeleles and now his guitars.

Another place that Andy uses his skill is in refurbishing old tools. Guild Vice President Tom Iovino had an old Disston No. 7 rip saw that he had purchased from eBay, and Andy offered to bring it back to life.

Over at Tom’s blog, Andy wrote a two part article about the process – from sharpening the teeth to refitting a brand new handle. You can read them here:

How did Andy do? A picture can say a thousand words…

Way to go, Andy!  Nice job…
