I haven’t posted here in a long time as I usually hang-out on another forum in the Hand Tools section. The last couple years I have been trying to acquire and learn how to use/maintain/restore old planes and saws mostly. Old chisels are hard to find in my area. Most of my projects are boxes as it lets me apply most of the jointery of furniture but on a much smaller scale. This is mostly because (1) I only have a 16’ x 20’ shop, (2) I get most of my wood in the cut-off pile of a local cabinet shop, so most of my wood is <4 ft, and (3) I find that making something as small as a box is better hand tool jointery practice than building a furniture size carcass and drawers.
Thanks for looking,
