Kestrel Video Page
Welcome to our Video Page! We'll be adding more and more interesting videos over time, so stay tuned! This is our new space for us to share with you.
In 1990, Roy Underhill, of the Woodright's Shop, visited Gregg to learn more about the carving tools of the Northwest Coast. We thought you might get a kick out of seeing this piece of Kestrel Tool history, from back in the good 'ol days.
3/4 of the way through the video, you get directed to the PBS website that owns it. Just click 'continue' and after a short ad you'll be able to finish watching the video.
The Kestrel Tool Video
This is the video formerly available only through our store. Now you can watch it here FREE! Watch as Gregg carves a ladle with Kestrel adzes and crooked knives, showing you usage and technique. A ladle is a great way to get started carving, and Gregg pretty much walks you through it here, step by step. There is also some general info on Northwest coast art, Kestrel Tool history, and some show and tell of the tools we make (circa 1999). Filmed in timeless VHS. Enjoy!
