Craftsmanship names an enduring, basic human impulse, the desire to do a job well for its own sake.

The Heartbeat of Florip Toolworks

This business developed out of a love for working with my hands. I value the time I spend on the lathe, mill, and at the workbench with a sketchpad. There is something rewarding about receiving a shipment of raw materials and transforming them into a fine tool. I work to improve my process and product on a daily basis.


I love making tools but I have never forgotten what these tools are used for- woodworking. Check out the “WOOD” tab to see what species I have available.

If your are in the Traverse City area (or Texas but want to drive really far) stop by The Red Door Coffee House in Lake Ann. I keep a stash of wood in the back.
