Purebred Nubian Dairy Goats, Reconditioned and Custom Hand Made Woodworking Tools in Tacoma, Washington
NOTICE: Unfortunately I can not longer cover postage to Europe or Canada. I will still be happy to mail items overseas, but will need to discuss postage ahead of time. In this manner, customers will still know how much they need to pay prior to shipment.
Time marches on! The goats of the "Blackberry Brigade" are fat and sassy. Thanks to them, the back of the farm needs little attention. Sad to say, we lost our three bee hives last winter to the cold and wet. We decided to take a break from the hives this summer, but hope to get more "dancing ladies" in the spring of 2017.
Kady and the Goats
Tool restoration and selling has become the main emphasis around here over the last year. Originally and order would come in every three to six months. It was sort of a easy going fun past time. This all changed about six months ago when Shannon Rogers of the The Hand Tool School contacted me for some auger bits. He was very happy with them and recommended me to his students/apprentices. Things went crazy from there! I'm in the shop every day trying to catch up on the back orders.

Karin (AKA: Grandma) has also been plugging along with a little project of her own. She makes frig magnets and holiday ornaments. I'm trying to get her to start posting them on this site. Maybe we can start by showing a few of them in the gallery.
I'm also still attending Theology by Extension (INSTI) classes, going into my third year. Its getting hectic!
There has been a lot of updating to the site as well. More and more people are checking us out, so a bit of tidying up seemed in order. Look it over and let us know know what you think.
