Topic tags/keywords: hand tool forensics

Following up on Ron’s idea, here’s another photo. As in the past,

See if you can identify the operation and hand tool that produced this waste. Akin to mechanisms of injury. Seeing an end result and determining the cause.

What was I doing, and with what?

Not easing corners, Bill. Nor chamfering.

I have seen shavings like that, removing bark from a green sapling. Done with a butter knife
or
cleaning up the edge of plywood with a block plane

From cutting grooves, or dados with a plough plane.

Eric got close enough. It’s cleaning up the edge of a piece of 1/4” Baltic birch plywood with a jack plane (set to about 1/64” per pass – I routinely cut plywood 1/4” from the line, then plane down to the line, aiming for about 20 passes to get there).

The ragged edges on the wood shavings (from the cross-grain plies, that I’m planing off the end grain) are what make it look different from chamfering or peeling bark or other operations on solid wood.

That makes much shorter curls, Duck. But yeah, the edges are similarly raggedy. Maybe that’ll be the next challenge. ;-)
