Tool Chest #2: Starting The Lid

Ripping stock to size. I really don’t know why I was staying so far from the line. Not that it matters. Apparently my sawing has been getting better. I stayed away from the line to allow for wandering of the saw blade, but it tracked so straight that I think I can stick right next to the line next time. Jointing sawn edges. While I know that the shavings aren’t what is important, seeing the difference in the shavings of my jointer plane(on top), and my fore plane(on ...

I am about a quarter of the way into building a six drawer dresser for my youngest son, Ryan. I have decided to favor hand tools for most of the joinery for my own education as well as, hopefully, the education of anyone else interested in using hand tools. Enjoy! Moving onward, I come to yet another opportunity to connect with the Luddi...
