Hand Tools #1: Watching Paint Dry

06-30-2007 09:53 PM by woodspar | 9 comments »

While I was watching the top coat paint dry on my shutters, (the acrylic based topcoat dries a good deal faster than the oil based primer!) I got this crazy idea in my head to start working with hand tools. So I got out my planes and chisels and my pull saw and started hacking away at some pine I had laying around the shop.
