This is my first attempt at working with hand tools and I am finding it very enjoyable, although, somewhat frustrating at how difficult it is to handle what seems to be such a basic exercise. Such as cutting with a handsaw, especially when it comes to ripping. My rips, and to some extent my crosscuts, all angle in to the left. Unsure what I am doing wrong there.
Pictures of my first dado joints made by hand. Overdid it on one that was originally too tight. By the time I finished it had some gaps.
