I was speaking with Martin Godfrey and we have reached terms for us to start selling woodrats in the USA. I will be attending woodshows demonstrating this wonderful machine. I will also be opening a new Website Called http://thewoodratsnest.com it will be everything about woodrats and how to use them. We will be shooting loads of videos on using the WoodRat and making some of the best joints in woodworking. After things start mooving I will be looking for demonstrators and expert WoodRat users to help sell WoodRats I want to see the WoodRat be a great success. I know Martin is excited to be back in the US market. I am very happy we have come to terms and that I will be the guy for WoodRats in the USA. The other great news is I will soon be testing and reviewing the newest Woodrat900. The 600 has become a go to machine in our shop I know the 900 can do bigger work and I am excited to have the chance to push it to its limits. Stay tuned for more Updates.

I was born in Fresno California 1961 and began woodworking at age 7 with my grandfather. He taught me many basics, specializing in hand tool work. At age 13 I began woodworking in shop class at Fort Miller Junior High School in Fresno, CA where I made many projects. My shop teachers told me I was by far more advanced and they were going to let me build projects to my level. I continued taking shop classes including wood and metal through high school.
In 1979 I joined the United States Marine Corps and did several tours of duty including some overseas in the Philippine Islands and in Iran. I was trained as a jet mechanic in the Marine Corps and enjoyed working with my hands. In the early 90s I was able to afford lots of tools to begin my workshop and with my friend Daniel Carter I formed This Old Workshop.com offering several tool reviews, and have increased the focus on tool reviews over the years. Since I have a background in mechanics I understand tool quality, and with my background in woodworking and metallurgy I was very well-qualified to do these reviews. Today, This Old Workshop is the oldest tool review website for the home woodshop user on the internet. I am very proud of the site Daniel and I have built and we are now expanding into a community and a podcast on woodworking.
