Matt Cremona


In this series of photos Matt uses a drawknife to pare down the bark of a log as part of his talk about working with live edge wood.
Matt demonstrates how to craft half-blind dovetails.

Matt demonstrated his technique for making bowtie joints using the router to hog out the bulk of the joint finishing with hands-on chisel work.

Using hand planes Matt explained how he integrates hand tools to "finish up" work done with power tools.

Using files, sharpening stones and burnishers Matt demonstrated how one can sharpen a card scraper for use as an effective scraping tool.

Denis Muras operated the overhead projector system and worked the camera so the audience could see the work that Matt was demonstrating.
