Werkzeug Eisen: Roman Iron Tools

Thanks to Chris Schwarz and the Lost Art Press team for making me spend hours looking at old books in a language I can’t remember from High School. Seriously, thank you. For all the woodworking history buffs, this type of shared literature adds a depth to the craft way beyond what most of us read on a daily basis. Great article: https://blog.lostartpress.com/2016/05/18/roman-tools-mouldings-and-hardware-at-saalburg/


The drawings are a hoot to look at!

Hi, this is not really about anything. Just me testing the intertubes with my own random meanderings and thoughts. Ostensibly, big word, I’m using this site as my personal log of sorts. I’m a random guy with 4 kids and a beautiful wife living in sunny Florida. Pardon the gratuitous posts with pictures of cute kids. I have an iPhone and can’t help myself. My day job is working in the area of informatics at the University of Florida where I like the shell. Oh, yeah and incase you can’t tell I like woodworking with handtools. Goes along with my command line philosophy 😉 Thanks for reading. Christopher P. Barnes
