egads :) who knew refurbishing a home was so… unhealthy?
with the garage FINALLY heated, insulated (at least for now…insulating walls will have to be done when the wallet says it’s ok), i now turn my attention to hand tools and storage. I have looked at all hand tool cabinets here on LJ project page and will mirror a few selected ones. For this upcoming project, I foresee diving into hand cut dovetails, router planing (to a point), dinky mortise / tenon joinery, and then finishing. The first step, sharpening out of box chisels. I have in my possession 6 piece set of new Crown butt chisels, 4 piece set of new Crown cranked chisels, new 1/2” standard Crown chisel… and some HD bought 4 piece Dewault chisels (hay… the sticker says made in Sheffield, England and not China…what did i know?). I also have Eze-Lap diamond stones of 150, 250, light medium, heavy medium, fine and 1200 super-fine, with a new (but old unused) Keen Kutter leather strop (still have to get the green compound) and with the Veritas mk II honing jig. So… i think i have the basics to get started. And so…I did.
