You get to look over my shoulder as I sharpen four saws – two backsaws and two hand saws. I’ll explain the saw sharpening process and how you apply it to different scenarios. I really hope you find it useful. As to the production quality, I’ve done the best I could. I had to record it outside, so there is a bi...

The other day I was driving home and noticed a neighbor had cut back a tree and had some limbs at the curb. I see this fairy often and very rarely stop to grab anything in it’s raw state.

I picked up another box of 20 exotic wood turning blanks from Rockler. It’s been on a big sale for a long while now, and I had free shipping going, too.
