The Galbert Drawsharp

September 22, 2014

Another one of the booths at Woodworking in America we stopped by and shot some footage at for the Highland Woodworking blog was Peter Galbert’s.

If you’re not familiar with Peter, he’s an amazing chair maker and an equally amazing instructor according to what I’ve heard (I missed all of his classes this year because I was too busy being a social butterfly in the market place.) Checkout his website and also his blog at

On top of these other accomplishments Peter also has a knack for designing tools to help you get better results from your other woodworking tools. This time we asked him to demonstrate the Galbert Drawsharp.

After watching Peter’s short demonstration, not short because he was trying to rush us off, instead short because it works that fast, I’m starting to think even I could get my grandfather’s “show-piece” to take a sharp edge and do a little work for me.

    You should absolutely do it. I was able to rehab several in a light evening’s effort including lots of playing with a crazy sharp drawknife for the first time ever.

      Thanks for sharing the link to the post. I’m not sure when I’d use the drawknife, but now I’m thinking I should start using one.
