In a recent visit to the local Woodcraft Store, I spied a piece of Birdseye
Maple which called out to me, "Take me home and make something." Put

upper Midwest and Southeastern states. I fear that I am becoming a
"collector", although I still adhere to my definition of "user" by cleaning,
sharpening, and putting each newly acquired antique tool into good working
