« Part 105: Deck build pt 2, done for this year. Part 106 of Shop stuff series Part 107: Update for October 2017 »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.

Nice work.
Necessity and laziness have invented many things.
Using the tools you have is a very good way to do things.

A drawkinfe is a very usable tool. I have one that is probably 80+ years old; I know for fact it is past 65! I have used this one that long; although for many of them, I was not supposed to! Started using it at about 5-or-6 years old.

Very resourceful. And I like the sound of those Loons at the beginning and end of your video. Takes me back to fishing in Canada and Minnesota and hearing them calling each other in a bay at the end of the day.

Have your say...
