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.
