Sorry to those of you who were confused by my comment about pictures . No pictures of my shop till I get it cleaned up . Yes there will be pictures of this project ” it’s not really in my shop , it’s too big ”. This project was started some time ago and I made many in progress pictures … sigh , but lost them . So I’m going to describe the process and pose useing the tools and if I can find a small log do some more in progress pictures of a small project . Finally I plan on picking up where the project chest is now . Also I like all your questions and comments so if you would like more info or if I made a mistake about either history or wood working PLEASE let me know . I don’t know it all and I’ve seen some of the great projects you people have made and know you folks are a great resource of skill and information .
