2014

2013 was a year of transition for Blue Spruce Toolworks; it was a good year. A big thank you to all of our customers who have supported us through buying tools and giving words of encouragement. You are the best! We are super excited about 2014 and have more plans than we know what to do with. We will be introducing a 16oz little brother to our 24oz Joiner’s Mallet very soon. It will be perfect for those who like a square mallet for lighter joinery work or who do not need the heft of the 24oz version.

We are also VERY close to re-releasing our Bench and Butt chisels after a very long hiatus. If you are on the waiting list we will be contacting you soon.

We have new equipment to get operational, areas of the shop to organize, many prototypes of new tools in various stages of development, and plans for better communication through our website, tool store, blog, videos and shows.

It is only January and our plans are not totally firm. We would like to get your thoughts on what YOU would like to see from Blue Spruce Toolworks in 2014 and beyond. Whether it is new products, services, communication, education, etc., we would like to know how we can make 2014 a good year for you. Please feel free to leave a comment below or fire off an email to dave@bluesprucetoolworks.com.
We hope you are also excited about 2014 and all of the opportunities it may bring your way.

    I need to do some more development with the heat treating process of O-1 to minimize warping, especially with the longer and narrow blades.  The firmer chisels will be made from O-1. However, for the immediate future we will be staying with A-2 for the bench and paring chisels.

  6. Glad to hear that you’ll soon be back to full production Dave. I’ve been holding off buying chisels for quite a while now as I’ve got my heart set on your bench chisels and would rather hold out for these to be back on the market than buy other chisels now which I would later regret.

    My wishlist for 2014 would be to see you bench and pairing chisels offered in 01 steel as an alternative to A2 (I’m an oilstone sharpening guy). Are there any plans to do this at some point?

    Crank-necked firmer chisels would be great since they would be more stout than the paring variety that I see most often.

    I would also like to see some mortise chisels along with squares, sliding bevels, marking and panel gauges, dovetail markers, winding sticks, and eventually back saws hand planes.

    Bob,
    How about some crank-necked firmer chisels?
    As soon as the Bench Chisels are in stable production we will get the firmers back on line.

    How about some cranked neck chisels. I am not impressed with what is available in the market today and I am sure you could make a great set. Will the firmer chisels be available when the bench chisels are back?

    I would like to see some pigsticker type mortise chisels. I would also like it if you offered all your chisels in both A2 and O1 steel. Maybe some fancy dovetail markers too.
