I first heard the name HNT Gordon back in 2007. At the time, I was reading my monthly issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine and there was a review of the A55 Smoothing Plane. I was intrigued by some of the unique characteristics the plane offered and I told myself that someday I’d like to take one for a test drive.
Fast forward a decade or so and I would find myself teaching in Melbourne, Australia, at the Melbourne Guild of Fine Woodworking. While there, I was fortunate to meet Terry Gordon and after all those years, finally got the chance to take his beautiful hand tools for a test drive.
They exceeded my expectations and reconfirmed what I had read in that magazine article all those years earlier. HNT Gordon makes some pretty incredible hand tools.
Today I’m fortunate to own my own woodworking school, store, maker-space and studio. When I first opened the Unplugged Woodshop Toronto, I decided to include a Hand Tool Emporium. This would be a space where some of the finest tool makers could showcase their wares in a working, hand tool only woodworking school! I knew straight away that HNT Gordon would have to be a part of this equation.
I’m extremely pleased to announce the Unplugged Woodshop Toronto is now the official, North American distributor of HNT Gordon Australia.
The Store has been updated and I’m excited to offer you some of the finest tools available anywhere.
