Geoffrey Entwistle Planemaker RIP
I'm sad to report the death of plane maker Geoffrey Entwistle in a Hospice over the weekend, my condolences to his family. I came to Geoffrey's work late in his career and unfortunately we never actually met, although in our e mail exchanges he was very courteous and unassuming for one with such talent.
Geoffrey kept a lower profile than some of our other plane makers but was no less able than the very best. I know from conversation I have had with his contemporaries his work was universally admired.
I would appreciate it if you all could circulate this sad news around the wood working community.
I will leave you with some pictures of his work which I think speak for themselves.
