When you jump into the hand planing realm, it has come to my attention that I would need good quality home made winding sticks. Sure I can buy them from Woodpecker or somewhere, but that does not give me experience that I’m chasing after. To cut the wood for winding sticks, I need a hand saw for that. Since I’ve been spoiled with my table saws, I have not done anything to my assorted collection of hand saws. That is about to change. I’ll be cherry picking the best couple hand saws to get into shape and taking a couple days to learn difference between rip and crosscut saws, saw teeth set, etc. Here is my current collection I have gathered (not shown are my Veritas tenon and dovetails saws) and finally get to use my saw vise I made in Lumberjock project section.
