Winner of the ‘Hammer in Hand’ Raffle

Thanks to everyone who donated money to help toolmaker Rob Hanson recover after losing everything to the recent Camp Fire in California. Your donations to this raffle raised $4,040 that went directly to Rob – no middleman.

The winner was Wolfram Herzog, who was a student in my most recent class on building a staked stool in Munich, Germany.

I am always amazed at the generosity of the people in our craft. Thanks so much for helping a fellow woodworker and toolmaker recover from an unspeakable tragedy.

    Sounds great on the donation amount.
    There is also a couple of ongoing threads at SMC and WoodNet, asking for donations and people have been donating to his link on his website from that direction.
    We bump those threads every so often to keep them up front.
