Hey Jesper and all, thanks for the router tips. I did look at the not so poor router with the allen wrench and that looks like a nice option also. I did finally pick up my wood today and found some Select Pine 1x8x47-48″ long and will be laying out hopefully tonight :-). I did sharpen my trustworthy #4 so see how it goes. Have fun. post pictuers if they are worthy, later.16 November 2012 at 11:02 pm #3342

Hi to all)) Just bought my wood from local lumber yard, as you can see all rough wood)) I need time to match humidity level in my room, winter season)) I thing I need at least a couple weeks. It would be nice if Paul can tell us about next projects so we can prepare wood for them. For now I have another fun project, just bought this chisels on E-Bay)

@safron: Nice wide boards 🙂 It’s really a pleasure to start working on a rough board with the plane and soon the ugliest piece of wood starts to reveal it’s beauty.

I hope everything’s going well Michael & Serhly. 🙂
It’s great seeing everyone getting busy with projects and investing more of themselves into what should prove to be a very enjoyable and enriching vocational course. 🙂17 November 2012 at 10:47 pm #3381SinisaParticipant
I’m currently at this stage and waiting for next episodes. Since I’m new to hand tool woodworking and still in process of learning basics I have found this project very valuable and I’m enjoying it.
What I have learnt so far? Well, I can relative well follow line when sawing but I can’t stay plumb. It takes me forever until I plane edge of board square to face side, I’m usually high on one side and found very hard to correct it. Making grows without plough plane is possible using chisels, saw and router plane although having plough plane will be very nice. Crosscutting without knife line is asking for trouble. Shoulders of my tenons are not completely tight. And, raising panel with hand plane is good physical exercise.
Anyhow, at this moment I’m more interested in journey than in final product. And I’m having fun so what can I ask for more…

Great site! Have learned a lot already. In fact it feels a little like the Holiday Inn commercials – ‘I may not be an artisan woodworker, but I watched Paul Sellers work last night’. Sinisa – I have a terrible time sawing. I’m right-handed, but left eye dominant. At least I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m always off the same direction 🙂 I have been following along, and finished episode 4 today. Here it is, a little marked up, but I think it will clean up OK before we’re done.18 November 2012 at 9:32 am #3397SinisaParticipant
thanks for nice words. As Ken said, it can only get better.
So far learning techniques and gaining skills is my primary goal
@Charles: I really like how you raised panel look

Charles, I’m right-handed and left eye dominant, I find using the reflection of the wood in the saw blade, helps keep me square in both planes.
I agree raised panel looks great. Nice job 🙂18 November 2012 at 5:30 pm #3421Paul SellersParticipant
I’m in the middle of making two more clocks, both in oak, and just made the panels from some quartersawn oak. Please, also think about changing the dimensions on your next clock. This pattern lends itself to midsize clocks too, so look out some clock parts and think of adding pendulum movements too.18 November 2012 at 5:31 pm #3423Paul SellersParticipant
Love seeing what you are all doing by the way. Wonderful.
