Welcome back to This Old Workshop. The site was formed in 1995 as The Old Hippy Workshop. We changed our name to This Old Workshop in 2001. At that time we had done several tool reviews and the decision was made to focus on home woodworking workshops, and the tools used for those shops. Over the years we have tested countless tools, and while some remain in the market, others were a flash in the pan. Yet one thing has remained constant, people want to know they are spending their money wisely.
We have developed criteria for testing tools and have stuck with that method for all these years. You can see that criteria in the reviews area. It explains what we look for when we rate a tool. Today will mark a major change in This Old Workshop, we are no longer just a tool review site, we have been moving towards being a hub for woodworkers for the past few months and now we have our new blog area up. The information inside is growing and is a lot of fun to read. We will be blogging on projects and we will be teaching our readers how to improve their skills both with tools and with wood. We will be releasing lots of how to videos and blogs on how to build projects. Our staff works very hard to learn new things each day so that we can share this knowledge with you, our dedicated readers. We will also be continuing our most popular feature, the Deltagram project. Along with our friends at Delta we will be posting new Deltagrams and Flying Chips issues each month till the archive is full. We are also going to be hosting several historical books in the near future. Everything we do is for our readers, to assist them in getting the most out of woodworking. Whether woodworking is a hobby or a vocation, it matters not. What matters is learning new ways to complete the tasks, and to complete a project with professional looking results. We will soon be doing some blog builds, so please join in and post comments in the blog area. This is your site as much as it is ours, so if you want to see something new please send me a message by email. I will normally reply within 2 working days. We care what you think.
