Hi everyone. I think there must be a whole lot of you out there who have developed woodworking hand skills over time. Some of you may have only one or maybe just a few hand skills that you do really well and others might be well versed on the full range. My thought is that it would be fun and informative to have more blogs showing handskills.I certainly don’t have much knowledge in this area, but I did do a blog on hand chopping mortises showing a method that works well for me.
I guess a lot of you are thinking that we see a lot of this stuff in FWW magazine. True, but there are lots of ways to do things, not just the FWW way. It seems to me that woodworkers are among some of the more inventive people around, so I suspect that there are plenty of interesting and surprising techniques out there that could be shared. If I can do it so can you!
