Tool List for Students

 
Dear Workshop Participant:

The following is a list of tools you will need for the class. If you have any questions regarding the tools you may contact Peter Galbert  at peter@petergalbertchairmaker.com. Please note that the links below are to show the type of tool and not necessarily an endorsement of specific retailers. If possible, please bring the following tools:
  • Cordless drill, ½” chuck preferred, my current favorite is Milwaukee  
  • Bench chisel, ½” or larger 
  •  Camera and Notebook
  • Scrapers curved and straight, my preferred thickness is .025" but slightly thicker or thinner works fine. Straight scrapers can be shaped to a curved profile in class.
  • Hand saw, Japanese Ryoba with rip and crosscut teeth preferred but small western crosscut saw
  • Sliding Bevel Square
For classes at The Galbert School in Rollinsford, please note that I have most of the tools that you will need, but feel free to bring your own tools such as :
  • Drawknife – first choice is an older, tuned up tool.  Peter will have refurbished antique drawknives on hand for use and possibly for sale.
  • Spokeshave- first choice is an older, tuned up spokeshave (Stanley 151) with a flat sole. Replacement blades from Hock tools improve the performance.
  • For a new tool, Pete recommends the flat bottom Brian Boggs Spokeshave from Lie-Nielsen or LeeValley Tools spokeshave.
  • Scorp or inshave The 4" hand forged scorp from Barr Specialty Tools, www.barrtools.com, 1-800-235-4452. The Barr scorp is also available through Highland Hardware, 1-800-241-6748.

  • 1” chip brush
  • Block of Canning wax (a candle will do)
