This is the Korean Chamjook.

I used the straight grain section.

cut the center.

and chiseled out little by little.

A couple of butterfly were completed.

These were assembled like this.

Till now, the whole parts of this project are finished.
After assembling the parts into a complete unit, I will show you later.

Thanks for reading.
See you ^^

Very impressive. I’ve tried cutting butterflies on the tablesaw and they never come out right. I’ll try your method next time!

Hi, gbvinc :)
Long time, no see.
Well… It’s still shining.
The very man who must worry about speaking other language is not you but me.

Mr Park,

Much impressed, will finish used make difficult to disassemble?
Interested in dovetail plane, is square rebate plane against angle guide, or less/more than square?

Many Thanks,
