Haveing just started the hand tool thing a couple of points came up. One is that we spend a large amount of time talking about planes when in fact a good set of chisels and hand saws are far more important to your toolkit. If you can,t cut a straight line or pare down to one then all that lovely work you just did with your mega buck handplane ain,t worth jack. Check my workshop and you,ll see what i,m working with. When I upgrade the first thing I will replace are the saws then the chisels with the handplanes third. I,m totally enjoying the hand tool experience, hope you do to.
