Great looking saw horses. I agree with Aaron, the photos look like they are destined for print

What are the tools in the 4th zoom picture that look similar to a painter’s church key?

@NotaJock Its paint can key likely tuned a little for cleaning out the bottoms of the mortise.

Thanks for all your kind remarks.

Swirt is right. They are the paint can openers that Paul Sellers uses to excavate mortise waste. I found two different sizes from a hardware store (Home Depot, Lowe’s etc. all carry them). If your mortises are of odd sizes. you could grind the larger one to fit them. They are substitutes for bent chisels which many people don’t own.
