Tools for Veneering : A Makers Year 83

Tools For Veneering

We are preparing for the two week summer school with Chris  at the end of August. We are realising that so many specialist tools are needed and some ordinary tools need to be in really good condition to do the job . So we thought you might like a “heads up”.  First of a few


These are absolutely critical tools that are an essential part of a makers tool kit. So much of good design is generated with these simple tools. However they  must have very sharp points . Old cheap dividers off e-bay can do the job but these Starrett dividers are the very best we know about. They have needle like points that will damage easily but are super accurate. You need this accuracy to do what we have in mind.  Having a divider that is not really accurate is like having a square that is not square
