Sweet mother of mercy I have been waiting a long time to post this entry.
Question: Do you want a polissoir that looks and works exactly like the one shown in Roubo’s 18th-century masterwork?
Answer: Why yes, I do. Click here.
Lie-Nielsen Toolworks is offering a gorgeous and simple polissoir that is the twin of the one shown in A.J. Roubo’s “l’Art du Menuisier.” It matches the original in form, size and everything. And it’s only $36. Buy it now or you will regret it when they run out.
This polissoir is made by the same artisan who makes Don Williams’s polissoir. And these are provided to Lie-Nielsen by Don Williams. In other words, everyone wins. Including you.
