My nose got bigger and hand got bigger.. like I was 14 again going through adolescence …
(a late bloomer, but I got carded last month cause no one can believe I am 40.. suck it up guys from high school who are old and dumpy now.. LOL)

Actually, I use a dozuki saw all the time and I occasionally show off to newbies that I can cut a 2×4 board free hand … without markings … perfectly true and square. I use the same technique as the spoon … I align the edge of the board with its reflection in the saw blade, making easy strokes without force and it is perfect every time. But to make sure they don’t get discouraged, I remind them I have been practicing for a decade.
