Those of you who have built this thing know what I am talking about when I say how nervious I was to put the saw to this thing. All I need now is some finish and put the hinges on. Of course I have to fix a few screw ups and dings….. But it’s done, almost!
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Well done Sandy cutting in half not so hard after all I bet.
I have made boxes in past where I have had to cut in half.
That sort of thing never really phased me as I am so used to using a handsaw/panelsaw. Mark 2 gauge lines just wider than kerf of saw. Then use nice even stroke with NOT a lot of power going through stroke let saw do work. Have couple of little wooden wedges ready incase cut start to bind wax or oil saw.
I did have a tool box I made when I was very young had a couple of saws in it block plane, smoother, chisels. brace and bits coping saw level a general carpenters tool box for the life of me I did not know what happened to that toolbox.
My box has been sitting around unfinished for too long. I had a tough time with the lid. It isn’t pretty but I just want to finish it. I attached the top and bottom and sawed it in two. Actually that wasn’t hard. I’m a better sawyer then planer (I think). Now I’m motivated to get it done. I just have to do the drawers.
