    Woodworker Specialties has been added to our list of suppliers under Resources - Tools/Suppliers. Don Fye said, 'Bob Gadd, the proprietor, gives great customer service and seems to have immediate access to the full line of Swiss Made tools - not just the limited selection that Woodcraft carries. Woodcraft did not have several of the tools on Phil Lowe's carving class list, but Bob was able to immediately ship me all of them. It also good that if you are buying more than one tool Bob's prices are significantly lower than Woodcraft - even after the shipping cost is added."
