It was nice using some harder timber for a change. Tasmanian Blackwood that I found on our river bank after a strong wind in 2009. I also changed from my usual 1:6 angle for softwoods to the preferred 1:8 for hardwoods.
Very pleased with the results!!!

nice work, Andy.
I wear ear protection when I chisel too – hate that noise!

The technique you used for sawing the tails seems like a good approach, and looks like the answer to why I can’t get good cuts. Whereas you saw one side of the wood and use that kerf to guide the saw through the other side, I was just going straight from the top down and keeping the saw parallel to the ground the whole time.

I’ll have to try it your way to see if results improve. Nice looking work!

Amazing. And I didn’t see any little sliver pieces filling any gaps. Very nice work Sir…
