If I had to use all hand tools, I would have a completely different hobby. I used to play a lot more golf then woodworking, but my health took that away from me. I have to participate in non physical activities.

I’m in the process of resawing and ripping 8/4 walnut by hand, for an upcoming Prie Dieu build … I’m convinced that’s  what keeps me healthy!

That’s not good if you don’t have a “sawing” partner or if you have really bad rheumatoid, or any other form of, arthritis.
They did get a very clean cut!
