On this week’s episode of the ShopNotes Podcast, Logan and Phil talk with the founder of Grizzly Tools about woodworking, the business of making tools and more….

It’s unusual to find a tool manufacturing executive who really understands the tools, much less is passionate about using them. Shiraz Balolia is one of the exceptions. With years of ongoing woodworking experience, he has first-hand knowledge of what tools should be like.

During the conversation, Logan and Phil hear about his projects, his workshops, and some behind-the-scenes stories of Grizzly Industrial. Check out some video featuring Shiraz’s work at the Grizzly Industrial YouTube channel.
