Welcome to the David Marks Shop Tour! Last summer, on our Gadget Station delivery trip, we decided to stop and visit the one and only David Marks. If you’re not familiar with David, he is an incredible woodworker/designer and used to host a show on HGTV and the DIY Network called Woodworks. His show was a huge influence on me personally and I know thousands of other woodworkers feel the same way. Unfortunately the show hasn’t been on the air for nearly 5 years (at the time of writing) and David has moved on to bigger and better things. While we were visiting his Santa Rosa, California shop he was kind enough to give us a little shop tour. This is pure gold for any big David Marks/Woodworks fans out there!
David recently released his Scrapers DVD. It contains everything you need to know to properly sharpen card scrapers, cabinet scrapers, and gooseneck scrapers. This is one of those simple things that alludes many woodworkers and David really breaks the process down into sensible steps. I watched this for the first time last week and I instantly felt like I was watching a new episode of Woodworks (only more REAL!) You can pick the DVD up here.
