I did not have a lot of energy by the time I got done with everything else that I had to do, so my “mini-roubo” was just a bit out of reach. I still wanted to do something, so I went to the scrap heap and found a piece of walnut large enough to split down to a more straight grained piece.
The goal here is to make a scraper shave, here are the prospective parts in there rough format the now straight grained walnut, a piece of desert ironwood (sometimes the scrap pile really pays off) the knurled screws and bolts and a piece of an old saw from a salvation army store.
we’ll see what this turns into.
