Tapered tenon cutter & mortise reamer
just for the pleasure of figuring it out
When I made my shaving horse, I made a reamer, at that time I also wanted to make a cutter, but never got there.
Since then I have seen quite a few cutters, vintage, new and other wood nerds playing with it.
But never did I see someone explain how to make one and what the difference was between those who cut and those who scrape… So I thought it was time to do something about it.
You can read more in the wee blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/49857

Hope this can inspire others to make their own tools and recycle.
