· Drawknife - an old one is fine if it's tuned up. For a new one try the chairmakers knife from Barr tools. It comes sharp.
· Spoke Shave-tuned up
· Smoothing plane
· Scorp - Barr tools makes a good one, it's his small one.
· Bevel square

tapered tang. Highland Woodworking sells individual
ones by Irwin.
· Bit Brace
· Dead blow hammer- a 2 lb. is good
· Marking gauge- with a point , not a wheel. A cheap one will do.

you registered for the class, please call and do so right away.

Curtis' recommendations are just that, recommendations. Other tools can work just fine. He will have a few extra tools to share such as drawknives, spokeshaves and scorps, and he will have a few tools for sale such as the reamer and travishers.
