Meet Russ

Upcoming Events...

These are some of planes (kanna) that Kamijo-san and Fanatsu-san made for me. Kamijo is President of Kezurou Kai and Fanatsu-san is a Japanese National Treasure blacksmith.

At the San Diego Fine Woodworker’s Association I will be discussing how I sharpen and use Japanese woodworking tools.

I will also discuss the Kezurou Kai USA organization and my next trip to Japan in November 2020.

At the Orange County Woodworker’s Association I will be discussing my oil finishing process as well as the use of the Japanese hand planes, and the sharpening of the plane iron.

I hope my friends in Southern California can attend one of these meetings.
