Let me take this opportunity to thank Anne Briggs for her article about me in Furniture & Cabinetmaking Magazine. Anne spent a good deal of time asking me questions and then, with editor Derek Jones, turned that interview into an article. I'd always hoped people would liken me to The Man of Steel but okay, Iron Man will have to do. Either way, I'm extremely flattered.

Did I spill any new beans for Anne? Not really, nothing shocking or new. But I gave a few opinions I normally hold close to the vest, and appreciated the chance and context to share some thoughts on craft, making tools, and sticking-to-it all these years. Thanks, Anne!

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