Bench Planning

I finished salvaging the wood from the pine pallet last night. Good stuff that. I got some very good slats out of it. Now, I can cobble together my sawbench. I need the sawbench so that I can process my hickory logs.

My drawknives came in. They should spruce up nicely. They range from terrible to pretty good, although even the terrible one will have its uses. It's narrow, for carving out those curved pieces. In practice, I have a very handy set. I have a wide blade, a medium blade, and a  narrow blade. It will be a while before I can give them a good testing out. I have to get them crazy-sharp first, then I have to make some sort of shave horse or sawhorse stand to work at.
