Shop Time with Ron Hock

While wondering around and drooling over all the wonderful tools at Woodworking in America, I stopped and had a chat with Ron Hock. I also asked him to have another conversation for the podcast, and he agreed. Ron's company Hock Tools makes what I consider the best woodworking blades available today. During our conversation we get to discuss how he got started making plane blades, sharpening, his new knife kits, and much more.

EP050 - The Woodworking Show - Milwaukee 2014

Earlier this year I took a ride down to the Woodworking Show in Milwaukee. I had the opportunity to do some filming and as always pick up a few things for myself. I now have a couple of new texturing tools from Ron Brown and got a pretty good deal on a big pack of foam brushes. There was time to catch up with Andy Chidwick and his family when I got the show. As you can see in the video I had a chance to speak with several of the exhibitors including Ron Brown, Earlex, Aqua Coat, Dubs Longboards, Milwaukee Lutherie, Kreg, MicoJig, and many more. After the show I had a visit with Jim Heavey, Roland Johnson, David Heim, Richand Wedler and some of the Bosch Reps at Dinner. It was a great show and a great time after the show as well.

Sounds like a lot of fun!

Andy Chidwick is a great guy. I have worked for him at his shop (as a pro not a student) while he was teaching a sculpted furniture class and I can say that he is an excellent teacher from my observation. I would recommend catching his seminars at the Woodworking Shows or taking a class from him for anyone looking to advance their woodworking skills in sculpted furniture.
