Hand Tools

some actual practical woodworking *PIC*

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Not much in wood posted here of late.

1st joint of pencil drawer in ash. It was astonishing how much easier the LN saw cut the wood than either LV saw. On the other hand I much prefer either LV saw in poplar.

I do like it when a dovetail comes together with a firm thump of the heel of my hand. There is no give in ash. It needs to be right or the wood will break.

Ugly ash. Maybe because of something to do with worms or the fact it died in place. Dull unattractive off white color. But, it is off the farm.
