Perhaps you haven’t heard of:

Sawmill Creek’s “neanderthal haven”
Wood Central’s hand tool forum
Woodnet’s hand tool forum

and many others. There are already numerous Internet forums devoted to hand tool working. Yours is not the first.


The link in your post with the text “here it is” goes to instead of /forum. I look forward to seeing how this forum turns out. Good luck!

Steve, I signed up for the forum, but never received the response email with a password.

Should I try again?

Hey Joshua,
I’d love to participate in the forum but I am not receiving an email with the password. Am I doing something wrong? I even tried the forgot password to get it to send a second and still no email.



I tried to register for the forum, but it doesn’t seem to be working? When I click on it, a small box pops up with small previews of the sub forums, but it doesn’t do anything…
