For planing, the current bench is not acceptable. The board had too much flex. So, back to sawbench design.
Four current projects:
- Tent pegs for the garden (3 dozen)
- Saw bench
- Small Mallet
- Axe Handle
For the axe handle, I'm busy making a board the hard way. I had a twisted split of oak, so now I'm chopping it down to something resembling a board. You'd be surprised how fast you learn to eye wood stock.
