Hello,

I am nearly done with the tiny boxes. I put some Tung oil on several of them last night and learned a couple of valuable lessons.

:-) don´t be so hard to your self no one ells will ever notice some of your small
mistakes and design changes over the years except yourself :-)
its proppely the worst part of being a woodworker you will proppely
20 years from now still remember every little mistake you maybee make
in your things and cuold point them out 2 secunds later if you see the piece again

take care
Dennis

Dennis,

You are probably right. I am being too hard on myself, but I do give myself credit for all the progress I have made. So that is good. :-)

:-) I know what you meen , I just made my first perfect cut with the japanese saw
I bought a while back and it was selebrated with an exstra goood cup of coffee :-)

Dennis,

I am sure she would be happy to give her father a lesson in hand sawing with ‘her’ Japanese hand saw.

I started with the Japanese hand saws, mostly because of an article I read in a woodworking magazine. I hadn’t used a western saw in 20 years or so, and so there wasn’t any difficulty switching from push to pull. I am sure that a skilled person could work with either, but I am not such a person. So I think I will stick with the Japanese hand saw, because I like them, and I think they are sort of cool.
