Information and Answers for Woodworkers
Occasionally I am fortunate enough to travel and see woodworking in places that not everyone will be able to visit. When I can, I like to share what I see, and this page is it.
I got to travel to Udine, Italy where the Irwin Marples line of 10 and 12" saw blades are being made. If you have ever wondered what goes into making a blade, check out this video!
The Saw Blade
One of my favorite parts of my trip to Italy (see above) was a visit to a "Squero", where they build the traditional Gondolas that Venice is famous for. This video expalins how these deceptively complex boats are built by hand.
