For the 2013 Ornament Swap I made a “Tote Full of Hand Tools”. I guess you have sing the Twelve days of Christmas in your head. I started with the dovetail saw. I had a lot of fun making it and with time to spare I kept on going. Its copied from a Lie-Nielson. Cherry handle, brass back and the blade is cut from a pull saw. The smoother is made from Leadwood and Sneezewood. Wedge is maple and iron is from a puddy knife. The mallet is white oak, bevel gage, square and marking gage are Brazilian cherry. Chisels are heat treated W-1 with B-cherry handles.

The ornament went to Danpaddles.
