Handmade, Hand Forged Axes: Amazing Blacksmithing Video by John Neeman

John Neeman is a small outfit making stunning quality, hand forged woodworking and timber framing tools in Latvia. Their work is impressive on multiple fronts (including this gorgeous documentary). Very inspiring.

I will have more information about John Neeman tools up in the coming weeks, as they are planning to launch an online store in the near future. (I’ve got a broad axe coming from them, too.)

Yea for traditional skills and blacksmithing!

p.s. Today is the last day to save 20% off the 2012 Timber Framing course! We may even get to use that handmade John Neeman broad axe during the workshop…

    Thanks for sharing it with all us all. Reminds me of chairmaker Jogn Brown of Wales.
    Good thing some folks care of hand work. Hope you have a nice workshop and will keep looking in for more news.
