When we left off last time I was plodding along on the Hand Tool School lessons. I am still. I am only two and a half lessons behind now. First there were the Bench Hooks
Hand Tools DVD that my wife got me for Christmas.
So that brings me to the current project, the saw till. I am in the panel make up and stock prep phase of that one. I am using Radiata Pine instead of some nice hard wood like "White Oak" wink wink. For one I can afford it. Two, if you look at almost all of my pictures above, you will see I use poplar for most of my shop stuff. My lumber supplier that is close by, (HD aka the Borg) doesn't carry 1x12 poplar. My real lumber supplier is about 80 miles away. I figured if I was going to glue up panels anyhow, I might as well use something a little lighter on the budget and in my opinion better looking. Some of the boards even show a little curl.
As always feel free to post any questions or comments in the section below. You could always contact me on Facebook or Twitter via the links on this page.
Until next time....
