Apprenticeship Contest – contestant #15

Apprenticeship Contest – contestant #15

 

Contestant #15 was also using a red handled jointer. It didn’t look quite like the red of the other Chinese jointer being used by contestant #21. After the contest I approached the young man to give him an original Hubbard Jointer so he could have the real thing. When he showed me his red handled jointer. I was surprised to see it was an original Hubbard Jointer. He had painted it red so everyone would think it was one of the Chinese copies. He said people kept stealing his Hubbard Jointer so he painted his latest replacement Hubbard Jointer red so the thieves would leave his jointer alone. A back handed compliment if there ever was one.
