My wife has been sick the last few days, so I stayed home from work to tend to her. Every now and then I would go out to the shop and get a little done while she slept. I had started back on the dovetails and am near finished.
This is one of the largest box frames I have dovetailed by hand.
Pairing and rasping to clear the saw marks. The dozuki might not have much kerf but my hands wander a little while I saw. Not being able to see well doesn’t help either.
Then the mail came. What a box with From Rand To Dave. And in the box A letter.
And next to the letter was a neat little brass hammer.
Now I want you to see what I have been beating on my planes with. First, for the wedge adjustment a one inch square piece of pine with a dowel in it, second an old tack hammer that is broke in 2 places. I make do.
Now Rand had gave me a heads up to watch the mail. When I got the hammer I named it Silk. For some very bad jokes a blog or two ago over son in laws. Silk stands for son in law killer;)
I had to give it a new home near my planes.
Getting late need to go in and tend to the wife and dinner. Thanks for reading.
