So I’ve made a few things since I last posted, but time in the shop has been hard to come by. I am pretty proud of the chisel till I threw together however. Based on the Wood Magazine plans I decided to cut it down by a couple of inches to fit on my wall and to fit with my tools – present and future. Made of poplar cause it’s cheap and finished with Minwax stain, it’s very humble but I like it and think it looks nice enough.
I learned a bit about very basic joinery on this one as picture 2 shows, I learned I have a long way to go! I also learned a bit about sawing waste by hand using my dozuki saw, as picture 2 also shows – I learned I have a long way to go!
Sense a theme here?
Anyhow, I am proud of the result and look forward to progressing on my journey working the wood. Picture 3 shows the till before loaded and hung on the wall. As you can see, I left one space without a slot for my burnisher. Yes, thanks to Stumpy Nubs I have recently discovered the joys of card scrapers and needed a way to put the hook on them as I learn, so now it has a home!
Any comments are welcome and I hope I have given some other newbie hope with this one!
