Description

“While working on books, I found myself needing simple but special tools to carry out the work on leather, wood, and bone. That set me on the road to making folders, awls, punches, and hooks. It is satisfying to me to see others making skillful use of the tools I have made. Tool making itself satisfies a need I have to keep my hands moving. I like the focus it provides.” -Shanna Leino
