Project Information

My past several projects were all making tools I wanted by hand tools and this time was to make a Wari Kebiki, a Japanese cutting gauge.

I wasn't confident enough to finish one that's usable quality and there are actually minor messes here and there but I finally made what I wanted! Also I have no tools/skills to fabricate a blade so I bought it from Japan.

It's almost a year since I started woodworking as a hobby and it seems like I really get into woodworking…

Looks awesome to me. You have started down the rabbit hole in tool making. It can be very addictive. You have been warned.

You should try one of the swaps we do here. The tool swaps are great.

Thank you for the kind words! I would love to join the tool swaps once I get confident enough in my skill to make people happy. About the tool making, yes, I'm already into it but I don't have a space to keep new tools so maybe one or two more? and that's all, I guess.

Yrti, the swaps are not about the woodworking skills, they are designed to challenge you to go outside your comfort zone and learn new skills. And they are fun, with a great bunch of guys and a few gals. So jump in, and you will get addicted to them too.

One of the major reason I got into woodworking is basically there are lots of nice people (I know no one in person) and I enjoy having communication with them so yeah, I need to try it maybe.
