    Handplane as Art

    David Pye wrote an inspiring definition of what craft is. (Thank you Amit)

    (Craftsmanship) means simply workmanship using any kind of technique or apparatus, in which the quality of the result is not predetermined, but depends on the judgment, dexterity and care which the maker exercises as he works. The essential idea is that the quality of the result is continually at risk during the process of making; and so I shall call this kind of workmanship The workmanship of risk. [3, p. 342]

    I would like to share these images of a handplane made around 1830s, the body is rosewood and the handle boxwood, sometimes the tools of woodworking become art.
