randyarnold's Shop Announcement


A quality tool is a joy to use. I strive to create tools that make your work easier and more efficient. I also intend to create tools that are simple to use, feel comfortable, and work well. My hope is that the tools that I create become the user's lifelong companion.

I know that it is difficult to purchase a tool sight unseen, therefore, if you are unhappy with any item, for any reason, feel free to return it for a full refund or replacement (your choice).

My tools are used by book artists such as Amy LeePard, Alicia Bailey, Rhonda Miller, Monica Holtsclaw, Larry Lou Foster, Mary Ann Sampson and Velma Bolyard. You may see my book binding tools in person at the Colophon Book Arts Supply, Kentuck Arts Center, and the Morgan Papermaking Conservatory.

I make each tool by hand, so no two tools will be exactly alike.
