Curtis Turner and his son show off this great project to do in the workshop with your kids this summer. The da Vinci Wooden Model Catapult Kit is just one of the wooden model kits available at Highland that will get your kids working in the shop and perhaps launch them into the world of woodworking. Check it out below!
Summer is upon us, and one way we can get more time in our shop is to invite our kids in with us. Help the kids in your life build woodworking skills that will last a lifetime with Highland Woodworking’s Tool Kit for Kids! Michael Morton reviews the tool kit in the short video below.
We originally profiled Chris Vesper back in 2016. Not long after that, he started building out a new space for his tool making business. We thought it was time to check back in with Chris and find out what has changed about Vesper Tools since we last chatted with him.

Whether your hand plane’s blade is used up, pitted with rust or just plain no good, a Hock Plane Iron from Highland Woodworking can be the quickest way to get your hand plane cutting its best. In the short video below, Jim Dillon takes a closer look at the Hock Plane Irons and explains what makes them work so well.
When Steve Johnson, the Down to Earth Woodworker, had to grind and sand some large ash slabs for a project he was working on, he started out using a regular dust mask. But after just one hour of sanding, he decided that he’d had enough and figured he would try out the Trend Airshield Pro.
For the May 2019 issue of Wood News Online, Jeff Fleisher took the Trend Airshield Pro for a spin in his own shop. An avid woodturner, Jeff frequently creates a lot of dust and he knows that breathing it in can be very bad for his lungs. Even so, he was initially skeptical about the size and weight of the Trend Airshield Pro, and wasn’t sure if he would want to incorporate it into his workshop.
