As summer ramps up and woodworkers leave their shops for beaches and barbeques, I would have thought we'd have less to do. Although we are experiencing well-known seasonal fluctuations; more is going on than I would have expected.

One way to handle the incoming is to offload some of the chores. I called Raney Nelson at Daed Toolworks to talk about taking some of Hock Tools' custom work. Raney was right there with me and is willing and happy to take over the bulk of our custom work.

You may know Raney as a master with metal; he makes jaw-drop beautiful tools and kits and is perpetually creative. Please read below for details.

Of course, if there is anything you need from Hock Tools, please let me know.
