Appreciate Your video. Good to see young people enjoy woodworking. Your right about walking away when frustrated with a project. A little time away can put things back into perspective. Now you know why woodworkers have so many projects started. LOL I enjoy seeing you using hand tools, I teach kids to use them first as they are just as important as power tools are. I did notice when you were using your Jig/Saber saw You had a little bit of jump at the start of the cut. I assume you are using a blade where the teeth cut on the up stroke, Try a blade that cuts on the down stroke you will get less jumping in your cut. I learn this the hard way. Just thought I would pass on the suggestion to you. Look forward to your next episode on the chest. Keep up the good work.

Yea I dont use the jig saw very often so I got some cheap blades. Usually for a cut like that I would have used my scroll saw and I would have been able to get much closer to the line but at the time I was out of scroll saw blades. In the past the only hand tools that I would use would be clamps. When ever I can use power tools I will but for some things there really isnt anything that can replace a card scraper. I use power tools about 90% of the time. The other 10% is usually a card scraper clamps or a surform shaver.
