Dave and Anders Dave Niles’ Guide on the Side Series continues!

Want to learn to properly use wood working tools and how to keep them sharp. Dave’s our Guide on the Side (no relation to Dub or Dave). Find him at posted times in the Craft Building, or just milling about the event. Each year he puts emphasis on different tools, but he’s always willing to discuss any of them. As service to the kayak building community we ask him to bring an assortment of the tools he might want to sell. He always looking, buying and selling some impressive hand tools. I’d go to him before I’d go to the box store.
