Lie-Nielsen is peculiar in that they actually invite other cottage tool makers to exhibit along side their own wares. I spent a considerable amount of time at the Glen-Drake display.

Past masters of woodworking learned their craft through excruciating repetition; bad work meant no pay. Most modern woodworkers practice the craft occasionally on nights and weekends. Mastering a technique is arduous, and opportunity to practice is limited. Utilizing the Glen-Drake tools and methods really is a way to develop repeatable quality results fairly quickly.
Here are some pictures of their products.
