The Slightly Confused Woodworker

Just a quick suggestion


During the past few years I’ve gotten into the habit of taking as many notes as possible when working on a project large and small. I write down just about anything that I feel is relevant: species used, dimensions, finish used, number of coats, hardware used, etc. But one thing that I’ve never thought about notating is the tools that were used during construction.

Just the other night I watched a YouTube furniture restoration video from Thomas Johnson and at the end of the video he makes mention of the tools he used to complete the restoration, and I thought that this was a pretty clever idea. It may be that most woodworkers will remember those things anyway, but it certainly couldn’t hurt to write it down. The size of chisels used, profiles used, sandpaper grit, etc. All of that information could come in handy at some point.

So, if I can offer a suggestion, it may be wise to notate the tools used on a project along with any other relevant information you might have (I wrote a post on this around a month ago). I’ve found that every bit of knowledge, no matter how small, can really help. So I’m going to add this little “trick” to my routine, and I think it might be a good idea for others to do the same.
