Tool Museum Tours

Museum curator David Phillips leads a tour for Nevada County Woodworkers at Grass Roots Antique Tool Museum. Located in Nevada City, Calif., the museum was established in 2004 and features a vast collection of over 3000 tools from as far back as 1712.

Director of the museum, Mike Snegg, leads the group through the workshop where he creates hand-crafted, hand-turned wooden bowls. A variety of vessels from Mike Snegg Bowls were showcased during the Smithsonian Craft Show in Washington, DC in 2021 and 2022.
