Handsaws: their use and abuse.

In conjunction with the handsaw sharpening workshop, handsaws their use and abuse is an important part of improving your hand tool skills.

We will talk about how to choose the right saw for the job at hand, how to choose the right saw for your body, how to cut to the line straight and true. We will cut to length and rip to width materials to give you the experience of breaking down stock to rough dimension. From the rough work we will practice cutting to the line at the bench and cut a few joints with backsaws and chisel. We will introduce the use of a bench appliance marking knives and marking gauges.
