Not much time spent in the shop over the weekend. I took care of some much-needed maintenance on the computer and changed a few things on my blog page. I think I’ve made the navigation here a bit easier. If you find otherwise, please let me know.
I managed to finish the carving on the sides of my oak box, but ripping the inch and a quarter from the top edge was a bit unnerving.
But I prevailed! I just love this old No. 7 rip saw. The elm tote feels great in my hand. It is nice and heavy and cuts like a champ. Who needs a machine? LOL!
Not too shabby, right off the saw. With just a few passes of a scraper plane, the edge was good to go. I cut rebates on the front and back pieces and made sure everything was good and square.
I decided this was enough progress for one day. The pintle needs to be formed still, not to mention the till cut and fitted. Perhaps I’ll be able to get that far tomorrow.
Please let me know how you like the blog’s new look. Thanks!
