A loss for all woodworkers and gardeners, not to mention those in need of equipment-based medical intervention. I do hope his passing was peaceful.

According to the newspaper account it was, it said he he passed peacefully during the night. He wrote the best book on sharpening ever written and that is according to Sorby, the English high end chisel maker. They recommended it and sold his book on their website. Just one of his many accomplishments.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
