Hello from Del & Mary of Pinewood Forge,
We have great news: after 23 years....Ville's book is finally reprinted! see link below....

*Christmas Tool Orders* - we've now reached our capcity to take any more knife (sloyd, hook, sweep) orders that can be sent for Christmas. New knife orders now will be first in line when we resume tool making in late January. Late Dec. and most of Jan. is when we take family time, and much time to clean the shop and make new fixtures, stock, etc.
*Christmas orders for Everything Else* We have all other items in stock, we will take orders for these until Dec 17. (International orders need much more time to arrive of course)
*Spoon Carving Tool Orders in queue* - The batch currently being made will catch us up to Nov.30th orders, & should be shipped by Dec.14th. Between now and the 18th we will be shipping out all orers we were able to commit to - then we will go collapse! ; )
*Weekends* Emails or phone calls that come in over a weekend will be responded to on Monday.
If you get our answering machine please leave a message, we will call you back, as we are in and out of the office throughout the day.
The items we have in stock and ready to ship:
Kolrosing, Detail, Harley and Stubby knives, sharpening supplies, cut-outs, books, and DVD's. In addition, we have the Figure Carving, Kolrosing, and Sharpening Kits in stock.
Hollowing tools, Skinny, 3-1/4" Sloyds:
I had promised these months ago.....an unexpected exponential increase in request for my tools - and an unrelenting stubborness on my part to keep increasing - rather than lowering my standards.....means I reach my production limit at 60 hours a week ...and can't do more....it drives me nuts to be 'behind', but such is the hand-craftsman's lot I guess!
3 1/4" Sloyds: - first we will fill orders from years back (about 50) then start on new orders, they will be sold un-handled only.
Skinny Sloyds: Will fill back orders first, then start taking new orders.
Deep Hollowing Tools: the same....
Business Hours 8-6 Central Time M-F. Emails sent during a weekend will be responded to on Monday.
