Woodworking in Montreal

Last year I bought a wooden block plane (which I discussed in a previous post) in Montreal at Chas Gentmantel & Sons Ltd. They carry planes from Kunz, Japanese saws, and woodworking machinery. Sadly there is little for the woodworker in Montreal – it is somewhat of a woodworking wasteland, which is odd considering how many artisans there are in the city. The only large Canadian province not to boast a Lee Valley store, although they do now have a catalog in French. There is also Langevin & Forest – they carry the new Stanley planes, (and some of the other doppelgänger planes), Japanese saws, and a bunch of other tools.
